The Free Land of Upper Libertatem
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Free Land of Upper Libertatem is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Liberty with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.578 billion 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarchia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Upper Libertatemian economy, worth 454 trillion currency units 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, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,950 currency units, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 624,484 per year while the poor average 14,737, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.
The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and rare steaks seem even bluer now. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Upper Libertatem's national animal is the rabid dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Timothism.
