The Most Serene Republic of Lightmare is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sartorius with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 2.785 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarot. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lightmarean economy, worth 477 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 171,338 Arcanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. 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.
