The Enlightened Republic of LightScribe is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working population of 4.884 billion LightScribeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Light City. The average income tax rate is 47%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, and the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LightScribe's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Scribe.

LightScribe is ranked 34th in The Allied Republics and 36,129th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 29 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
