The Sad Empire of Libertanny is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Senate with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.737 billion Libertannians 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, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federati Capital City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Libertannyian economy, worth 381 trillion Pcfis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,511 Pcfis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 569,106 per year while the poor average 22,673, a ratio of 25.1 to 1.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Lions and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Libertanny's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

Libertanny is ranked 71,012th in the world and 2,899th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,684.67 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
