The Commonwealth of Liburia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Zenon Ševerinet with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.917 billion Liburians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Europa. The average income tax rate is 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liburian economy, worth a remarkable 3,510 trillion güldes 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 235,328 güldes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The fishing lobby has stemmed the tide of environmental regulations, young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, legislators toe the party line lest the Sergeant-at-Arms decide to conduct "truncheon practice" on the backbench, and copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liburia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Liburia is ranked 154,208th in the world and 120th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 190.39 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
