The Republic of Lisokyo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ekit with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.066 billion Lisokyoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enso. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lisokyoan economy, worth 172 trillion Kaikishes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,320 Kaikishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Lisokyoan mussels the biggest in 10000 Islands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lisokyo's national animal is the Water Anole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lisokyo is ranked 19,990th in the world and 319th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,795.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
