The Republic of Lightford is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Josip Pusztai with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.768 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 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lightfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,175 trillion Dollars a year, is 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 203,810 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders Josip Pusztai wears an armoured gauntlet, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Winterview City to enjoy their national art, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Lightford's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightford is ranked 30,837th in the world and 20th in Krillin for Most Stationary, with 493.02296918732 Days.
