The Commonwealth of The Libertarian States is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 539 million Libertarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ark. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Libertarian economy, worth 60.6 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,464 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, and careless Maxémon Trainers have been the cause of numerous search and rescue operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Libertarian States's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Libertarian States is ranked 157,562nd in the world and 143rd in Social Technocratic Union for Most Politically Free, scoring 31.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
