The Kingdom of Lizerland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Alexandre VII with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.644 billion Lizerlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haupstadt. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lizerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,294 trillion Arcs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 149,711 Arcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, and international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lizerland's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Lizerland is ranked 14,999th in the world and 3rd in the Union of Wreath and Rose for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,442 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
