The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by LEADER with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.726 billion TheSourceans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient TheSourcean economy, worth a remarkable 8,958 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 231,336 CURRENCIES, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 790,957 per year while the poor average 49,745, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

Recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 86,349th in the world and 105th in Nederland for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,784.48 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
