The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by LEADER with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.53 billion TheSourceans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient TheSourcean economy, worth a remarkable 5,514 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 207,875 CURRENCIES, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 681,709 per year while the poor average 47,573, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.
Euthanasia is legal, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and the land is famous throughout the region for its rampant lawlessness. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. TheSource's national animal is the ANIMAL, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is FAITH.
