The Free Land of Liberteland is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 139 million Libertelandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The strong Libertelandian economy, worth 9.81 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 70,581 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 448,105 per year while the poor average 4,608, a ratio of 97.2 to 1.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Liberteland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Liberteland is ranked 161,668th in the world and 7,227th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 7.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
