The Free Land of Liberdos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by A bunch of O2 with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.471 billion Liberdosians 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, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rich Paradise land. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Liberdosian economy, worth 193 trillion pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 131,443 pesos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,199,586 per year while the poor average 1,592, a ratio of 753 to 1.

Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal, the most popular household pet in Liberdos is the domestic minor, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, and convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Liberdos's national animal is the Hedgehod, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Liberdos is ranked 266,689th in the world and 1,129th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 0.6 quips per hour.
