The Divine Sanctuaries of Perpetual Light is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.372 billion rays of Perpetual Light are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerald City. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Perpetually Illuminated economy, worth 65.9 trillion oms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. Average income is 48,065 oms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums, and Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal. Crime is totally unknown. Perpetual Light's national animal is the emerald sea slug, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Perpetual Light is ranked 12,090th in the world and 33rd in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 88.47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
