The Principality of Lisander is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime-Minister Fernand Ecker with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.007 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 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lisanderian economy, worth a remarkable 3,809 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 200,436 Lis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, Lisander isn't what it used to be, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. 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 254,184th in the world and 10th in Astyria for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -17.17 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
