The Devolution Federation of Libertia-Capitalista is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dagny Taggart with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.093 billion Libertia-Capitalistans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fountainhead. The average income tax rate is 48.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Libertia-Capitalistan economy, worth 157 trillion libertian e-dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 144,257 libertian e-dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Libertia-Capitalista's national animal is the Parakeet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Objectivism.

Libertia-Capitalista is ranked 190,674th in the world and 6,764th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 108.89 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
