The Community of Societe Libre is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 549 million Societe Libreans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Societe Librean economy, worth 13.8 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 25,108 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Leader sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Societe Libre's national animal is the black cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Societe Libre is ranked 29,596th in the world and 155th in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
