The Poor Soul of Lifeforce is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.934 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Soda Sales and Automobile Manufacturing.

All citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the Father of the House has been in office just shy of a fortnight, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. 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 117th in Balder and 2,154th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 165 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
