The Constitutional Monarchy of LIGHT-STARS is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Scott with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 4.169 billion LIGHT-STARSians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metra-stars. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient LIGHT-STARSian economy, worth 518 trillion Lights a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,418 Lights, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, both criminals and civilians are DOA, and liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LIGHT-STARS's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lighthood.

LIGHT-STARS is ranked 26,891st in the world and 812th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,891.09 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
