The Constitutional Monarchy of LIGHT-STARS is a huge, safe nation, notable for its national health service, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The quiet, industrious population of 589 million LIGHT-STARSians 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metra-stars. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse LIGHT-STARSian economy, worth 51.1 trillion Lights a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,747 Lights, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LIGHT-STARS's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

LIGHT-STARS is ranked 135,155th in the world and 5,104th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 51.51 Workforce Participation Rate.
