Population2.285 billion



The Kingdom of Literian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Skydon with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.285 billion Literians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of D'Amare. The average income tax rate is 90.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Literianian economy, worth 320 trillion Armonds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,219 Armonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love. Crime is totally unknown. Literian's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Literian is ranked 123,027th in the world and 127th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
