The Legendary Lawless Land of The Liberati is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by each individual with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.202 billion Liberatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Liberatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,840 trillion bartered goods a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 150,814 bartered goods, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 532,894 per year while the poor average 30,846, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, news headlines suggest that each individual has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Liberati's national animal is the freebird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Unbridled Freedom.

The Liberati is ranked 21,460th in the world and 1,256th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 245.48 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
