The Nomadic Peoples of Moaning Lisa is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Moll Flanders with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.71 billion Moaning Lisans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fanny Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Moaning Lisan economy, worth 682 trillion Vouchers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 183,858 Vouchers, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes the property of the recently deceased, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Moaning Lisa's national animal is the Louse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Meretriciousness.

Moaning Lisa is ranked 16,091st in the world and 495th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 71.22 quips per hour.
