The Heavenly Light of Salvation of Lucy Cavendish is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Concerned Mom-to-Be with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.373 billion Cavendishes live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zügellosigkeit Durcheinander. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cavendishian economy, worth a remarkable 3,157 trillion Queens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 304,441 Queens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,129,416 per year while the poor average 57,724, a ratio of 19.6 to 1.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lucy Cavendish's national animal is the Doe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lucy Cavendish is ranked 894th in the world and 1st in Queens Coming Into Our Own for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 13,753.87 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
