The Free Land of Liberstankonia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 486 million Liberstankonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberholm. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The all-consuming Liberstankonian economy, worth 48.0 trillion francliras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 98,852 francliras, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 309,391 per year while the poor average 24,221, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime is totally unknown. Liberstankonia's national animal is the The long handed T-Rex, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Liberstankonia is ranked 9,680th in the world and 299th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,945.09 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
