Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Lixbarvia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Louise Mivaer with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.601 billion Lixbarvians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baria Centriv. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lixbarvian economy, worth 900 trillion Lixians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 195,630 Lixians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lixbarvia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lixbarvia is ranked 919th in the world and 32nd in Osiris for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
