The Queen's State of Liard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.864 billion Liardians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The thriving Liardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 49,370 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 335,656 per year while the poor average 2,652, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, all tariffs have been abolished, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and child labor has been outlawed. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Liard's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Liard is ranked 132,461st in the world and 8th in Algeria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.19 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
