The Equatorial Bulge of Lislandia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alexa Downeaster with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.249 billion Lislandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiwahiwa. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lislandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 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 amazing 221,864 lisles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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 1,651st in the world and 2nd in Conch Kingdom for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 62,679.18 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
