The Republic of Liberatin is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Andrew Mercer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.869 billion Liberatines love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tusen. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Liberatine economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,059 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by President Andrew Mercer after national disasters, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings, and nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liberatin's national animal is the crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Liberatin is ranked 144,695th in the world and 51st in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.22 on the Rand Index.
