|Faith||The Society Of Light|
The Most Serene Republic of Lightmare is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sartorius with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 2.594 billion Lightmareans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarot. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lightmarean economy, worth 439 trillion Arcanas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,326 Arcanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
People believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lightmare's national animal is the Happy Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Society Of Light.
