The Republic of New Liberitad is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 691 million New Liberitadians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Liberitad City. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Liberitadian economy, worth 58.1 trillion New Liberitad Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,080 New Liberitad Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug. 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 98,452nd in the world and 4,398th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 41.12 on the Rand Index.
