The Constitutional Republic of Lightsey is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 812 million Lightsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of justice. The average income tax rate is 21.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lightseyian economy, worth 69.9 trillion EAST US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,059 EAST US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lightsey's national animal is the Manta Ray, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightsey is ranked 8,481st in the world and 72nd in Europeia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 9,102.72 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
