The Equatorial Bulge of Lislandia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Alexa Downeaster with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.253 billion Lislandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiwahiwa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Lislandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,107 trillion lisles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,400 lisles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Lislandia, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. 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 1,354th in the world and 7th in Conch Kingdom for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 146 valid endorsements.
