The Free Land of Land2020 is a huge, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 643 million Land2020ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberalgrad. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Land2020ian economy, worth 69.3 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,702 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Polar bearball fields, literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Land2020's national animal is the Polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land2020 is ranked 25,009th in the world and 42nd in Anteria for Largest Governments, scoring 23.83 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
