The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by LEADER with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 35.728 billion TheSourceans 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Administration and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient TheSourcean economy, worth a remarkable 8,798 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 246,270 CURRENCIES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, urban citizens are forced onto public transport while rural citizens ride horses and buggies, and pirates armed with sonar-guided semi-autonomous torpedos and laser weapons systems are often seen capturing fishing trawlers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. TheSource's national animal is the ANIMAL, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is FAITH.

TheSource is ranked 113,552nd in the world and 47th in Nederland for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 45.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
