The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by LEADER with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.932 billion TheSourceans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Spirituality not 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 6,796 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 212,839 CURRENCIES, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 697,986 per year while the poor average 48,709, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the land is famous throughout the region for its rampant lawlessness, and abortions are routinely performed in TheSource's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 22,512th in the world and 26th in Nederland for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 14.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
