Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the West Pacific



Population1.902 billion



The Starchy Republic of Libterraria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Potater with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.902 billion Libterrarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potadon. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Libterrarian economy, worth 229 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 120,875 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Libterraria's radio stations, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown. Libterraria's national animal is the Potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Libterraria is ranked 11,336th in the world and 176th in the West Pacific for Nudest, with 218.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
