The Republic of Free Lystan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 388 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Copenwert. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Free Lystanian economy, worth 15.6 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,192 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and child labor has been outlawed. 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 162,644th in the world and 502nd in The Black Hawks for Most Extreme, scoring 10.39 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
