The Poor Soul of Lifeforce is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.749 billion Lifeforceans 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.

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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 134th in Balder and 4,979th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 17 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
