The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by LEADER with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.313 billion TheSourceans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient TheSourcean economy, worth a remarkable 8,510 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is fairly diversified and 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,080 CURRENCIES, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. 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 204,165th in the world and 114th in Nederland for Least Corrupt Governments, with 32.35 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
