The Poor Soul of Lifeforce is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.96 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, Social Welfare, and Commerce. 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.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, the government has enacted freedom of information, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 2,963rd in Balder and 104,833rd in the world for Best Weather, with -123 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
