The Libertarian Republics of The Liberated Territories is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Generalissimo with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.74 billion Territoriesians 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with International Aid also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Independence City. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Territoriesian economy, worth 212 trillion Liberty Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 19,747 Liberty Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 99,081 per year while the poor average 2,205, a ratio of 44.9 to 1.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Liberated Territories's national animal is the Snek, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is No Religion.

The Liberated Territories is ranked 42,591st in the world and 13th in Zentari for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,150.33 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
