Location: Artificial Solar System

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Cod of Libcod is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.297 billion Libcodians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The strong Libcodian economy, worth 66.2 trillion rupees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 51,037 rupees, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 288,868 per year while the poor average 4,418, a ratio of 65.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem. Libcod's national animal is the beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Libcod is ranked 142,272nd in the world and 1,941st in Artificial Solar System for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,507.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
