The Kingdom of Literian is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 654 million Literianians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Literia. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Literianian economy, worth 68.8 trillion Armonds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,182 Armonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime is totally unknown. Literian's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Literian is ranked 200,246th in the world and 449th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -8.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
