The Starchy Republic of Libterraria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Potater with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.441 billion Libterrarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potadon. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Libterrarian economy, worth 168 trillion Potatoes 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 116,754 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Libterraria's national animal is the Potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Libterraria is ranked 182,194th in the world and 5,856th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
