The Spooky Union of Liossalde is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Holy Popesecretary Pius XXXVIII with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.917 billion Liossaldians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Whitby. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liossaldian economy, worth a remarkable 2,529 trillion Liossaldian Soliduses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 149,500 Liossaldian Soliduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, Holy Popesecretary Pius XXXVIII is worshipped as a god, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liossalde's national animal is the Vampires, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Liossaldian Christianism.

Liossalde is ranked 9,807th in the world and 50th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,304.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
