The Republic of Liphia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rock the Dwayne Johnson with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.051 billion Liphians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Liphian economy, worth 391 trillion Stonks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 128,438 Stonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign governments' extravagances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liphia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Liphia is ranked 268,994th in the world and 415th in Refugia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -604.47 on the Hayek Index.
