The Federation of Libertalonia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 886 million Libertalonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of new stathiem. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Libertalonian economy, worth 57.8 trillion Regals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,215 Regals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, glamping Libertalonians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Libertalonia's national animal is the Python.

Libertalonia is ranked 44,938th in the world and 40th in Bluecrown Keep for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.04 Bank.
