The Libertarian State of The Free Californian People is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pogan Laul with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.053 billion Californians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth 307 trillion Californian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 149,618 Californian Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 640,264 per year while the poor average 22,413, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, eminent domain has been abolished, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Free Californian People's national animal is the Californian Grizzly Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Free Californian People is ranked 157,033rd in the world and 8,436th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 47.8 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
