The Democratic Republic of Libate is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kurt Schmidt with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 22.101 billion Libateans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olland. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Libatean economy, worth a remarkable 2,258 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,177 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official Libatean Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, Libate is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Libate's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Libate is ranked 22,894th in the world and 68th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Developed, scoring 80.52 on the Human Development Index.
