The Libertarian Republics of The Liberated Territories is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Generalissimo with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.781 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, although International Aid is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 294 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 19,943 Liberty Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 118,704 per year while the poor average 1,534, a ratio of 77.3 to 1.

Journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and government critics have noticed a lot of new neighbors with expensive surveillance equipment in their garages. 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 17,063rd in the world and 4th in Zentari for Most Secular, with 67.62 Atheism Rate.
