The Principality of Lisander is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime-Minister Fernand Ecker with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.113 billion Lisanderians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lisanderian economy, worth a remarkable 2,759 trillion Lis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 182,566 Lis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, Lisander recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. 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 4,345th in the world and 5th in Esportiva for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 134.15 on the Hayek Index.
