The Kingdom of Liberated Wales is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Aeddan Caerwyn I of Wales with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.283 billion Welsh 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cardiff. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The thriving Welsh economy, worth 160 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 70,282 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

King Aeddan Caerwyn I of Wales has just been declared ruler of Liberated Wales in an international press conference, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, third world countries are rich in "I Love Cardiff" t-shirts, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Liberated Wales's national animal is the Red Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Liberated Wales is ranked 118,737th in the world and 16th in Lorania for Most Extreme, scoring 17.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
