The Queer Utopia of Liphia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rock the Dwayne Johnson with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.962 billion Liphians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Place. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Liphian economy, worth a remarkable 1,063 trillion Stonks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 178,307 Stonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, graffiti graces every city's streets, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liphia's national animal is the Blåhaj, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Liphia is ranked 5,895th in the world and 21st in Refugia for Smartest Citizens, with 121.23 quips per hour.
