The Bar and Continual Soiree of Livingood in the Neighborhood is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jonny B with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.861 billion Livingood in the Neighborhoodians 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Friendship. The average income tax rate is 26.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Livingood in the Neighborhoodian economy, worth 52.0 trillion shots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,944 shots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare steaks seem even bluer now, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, Always Living the Good Life has been named as Livingood in the Neighborhood's national religion, and skateboarding is the only legal way to travel. Crime is well under control. Livingood in the Neighborhood's national animal is the party animal and its national religion is Always Living the Good Life.

Livingood in the Neighborhood is ranked 50,056th in the world and 218th in Artificial Solar System for Nudest, with 205 cheeks per square mile.
