The Heavenly Light of Salvation of Lucy Cavendish is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Concerned Mom-to-Be with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.963 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 2,726 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 304,190 Queens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,126,401 per year while the poor average 57,844, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and a milk bath costs more than bathing in money. 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 1,240th in the world and 1st in Queens Coming Into Our Own for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 22,095.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
