The Hive Regime of the Dominion of Liagolas is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the Liagolas of the Dominion with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.268 billion Liagosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Domain Prime. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Liagosian economy, worth 112 trillion metrics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,763 metrics, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liagolas's national animal is the dormouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Self-Subsumption.

Liagolas is ranked 218,393rd in the world and 1st in The Liagolas of the Dominion for Most Politically Free, scoring 12 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
