The Holy Commune State of Liossalde is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Holy Paposecretary Pius XXXVIII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 11.006 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holly Whitby. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liossaldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,563 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 142,100 Liossaldian Soliduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, and international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liossalde's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Liossalde is ranked 3,060th in the world and 2nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,937.11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
