The Principality of Lisander is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime-Minister Fernand Ecker with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.024 billion Lisanderians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soria. The average income tax rate is 12.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lisanderian economy, worth a remarkable 3,808 trillion Lis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,174 Lis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, Lisander isn't what it used to be, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims. Crime is totally unknown. Lisander's national animal is the Ermine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Aristotelic Church.

Lisander is ranked 14,841st in the world and 5th in Astyria for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,481 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
