The Republic of New Liberitad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Michael Rodriguez with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.251 billion New Liberitadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Liberitad City. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Liberitadian economy, worth 244 trillion New Liberitad Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,642 New Liberitad Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Liberitad's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Liberitad is ranked 3,171st in the world and 90th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.65 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
