The Republic of Lisokyo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ekit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.614 billion Lisokyoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enso. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lisokyoan economy, worth 379 trillion Kaikishes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,278 Kaikishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Lisokyoan mussels the biggest in 10000 Islands, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lisokyo's national animal is the Water Anole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lisokyo is ranked 26,802nd in the world and 342nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,740.11 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
