The 💀 Silent Glare 💀 of Free Source is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kira with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, feral children, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.426 billion Innocents are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Sourcean economy, worth 321 trillion Lifespans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,399 Lifespans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Source's national animal is the catgirl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Free Source is ranked 7,613th in the world and 1st in Ideal World for Safest, scoring 122.87 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
