The Community of Libeenes is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, humorless population of 688 million Libeenesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Libeenesian economy, worth 72.7 trillion Trades 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. 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 impressive 105,682 Trades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, it is a silent spring in Libeenes, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Libeenes's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Libeenes is ranked 242,138th in the world and 514th in Refugia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
