The Republic of Lightford is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Josip Pusztai with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.933 billion Lightfordians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterview City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lightfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,223 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,162 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime is totally unknown. Lightford's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightford is ranked 176,281st in the world and 105th in Krillin for Most Average, scoring 23.14 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
