The Joyful Republic of Liberdon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Overlord Squall Arctic with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.891 billion Liberdonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rectus City. The average income tax rate is 15.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liberdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,334 trillion ice cubes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 169,120 ice cubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, voting is voluntary, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, and the blood, sweat, and tears of poor Liberdonians make research institutes rich. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Liberdon's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Liberdon is ranked 119,162nd in the world and 428th in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,173.91 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
