The Equatorial Bulge of Lislandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexa Downeaster with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.617 billion Lislandians 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.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiwahiwa. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lislandian economy, worth 841 trillion lisles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 182,176 lisles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime is totally unknown. Lislandia's national animal is the harloquin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baba Yetu.

Lislandia is ranked 19,004th in the world and 47th in Conch Kingdom for Most Secular, with 59.21 Atheism Rate.
