The Liberated Cartel of Psypheria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Executive Officer with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.958 billion human resources are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psypheria Mall. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Psypherian economy, worth an astonishing 19,353 trillion royals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 625,164 royals, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,945,610 per year while the poor average 41,470, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, t-shirts displaying a photo of Chief Executive Officer performing the Full-Monty are selling out, it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Psypheria. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Psypheria's national animal is the golden eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Psypheria is ranked 607th in the world and 1st in Oubliette for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,019.59 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
