The Republic of Free Lystan is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 435 million Free Lystanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Copenwert. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Free Lystanian economy, worth 19.5 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,760 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Free Lystan's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Free Lystan is ranked 136,648th in the world and 410th in The Black Hawks for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 116.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
