Liberum Hibernia

Population325 million



The Republic of Liberum Hibernia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 325 million Hibernians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubhlinn. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Hibernian economy, worth 16.8 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 51,766 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liberum Hibernia's national animal is the Gizka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Liberum Hibernia is ranked 186,144th in the world and 4,586th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 16.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
