Liberum Hibernia

Population439 million



The Republic of Liberum Hibernia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 439 million Hibernians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubhlinn. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Hibernian economy, worth 26.4 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 60,141 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liberum Hibernia's national animal is the Gizka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Liberum Hibernia is ranked 49,081st in the world and 2,274th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 65.75 on the Human Development Index.
