The Republic of Lightford is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Josip Pusztai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.085 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 prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterview City. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lightfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,737 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 214,900 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Lightford's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lightford is ranked 8,868th in the world and 8th in Krillin for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.64 years.
