The Free Land of Upper Libertatem is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 699 million Upper Libertatemians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarchia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Upper Libertatemian economy, worth 77.9 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 111,515 gold bars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 476,192 per year while the poor average 16,767, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.
Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, and only the fast and the furious are brave enough to drive. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Upper Libertatem's national animal is the rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
