The Starchy Republic of Libterraria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Potater with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.924 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, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potadon. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Libterrarian economy, worth 232 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 120,875 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Libterraria's radio stations, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown. Libterraria's national animal is the Potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Libterraria is ranked 205,058th in the world and 5,447th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
