The Lunar Isles of Liraka is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Kirmisa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.075 billion Lirakans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosabi. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lirakan economy, worth 75.9 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 70,636 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liraka's national animal is the black swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Liraka is ranked 81,778th in the world and 48th in Force for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,049.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
