The Principality of Lisander is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Johann Harmin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.902 billion Lisanderians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded 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 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lisanderian economy, worth a remarkable 2,149 trillion Lis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,604 Lis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Prince Johann Harmin's questionably sane new coalition partners, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. 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 40,487th in the world and 4th in Imperan League for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,912.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
