The Most Serene Republic of Lightmare is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sartorius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.122 billion Lightmareans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarot. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lightmarean economy, worth 548 trillion Arcanas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,560 Arcanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, third world countries are rich in "I Love Tarot" t-shirts, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lightmare's national animal is the Happy Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Society Of Light.

Lightmare is ranked 7,251st in the world and 191st in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,166.07 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
