The Queer Utopia of Liphia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rock the Dwayne Johnson with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.005 billion Liphians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Place. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Liphian economy, worth a remarkable 1,073 trillion Stonks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 178,715 Stonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Celebrities sit helplessly as they are labeled "pompous womples" by Rock the Dwayne Johnson, Liphian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Rock the Dwayne Johnson to meetings with foreign heads of state, and pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liphia's national animal is the Blåhaj, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Liphia is ranked 286,818th in the world and 325th in Refugia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -18.06 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
