The Poor Soul of Lifeforce is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.458 billion Lifeforceans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secret Base. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing.

The LBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, and the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lifeforce's national animal is the Wisp, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Raiderism, and its currency is the Seashell.

Lifeforce is ranked 2,601st in Balder and 103,951st in the world for Best Weather, with -125 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
