The Republic of Liata is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leila with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.659 billion Liatans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piryllae. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Liatan economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 trillion Litens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 143,001 Litens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Liten treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown. Liata's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Liata is ranked 9,795th in the world and 25th in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,316.76 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
