The Free State of Lerizia is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Theophilus Agistaria with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 973 million Lerizians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atylena. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Lerizian economy, worth 15.4 trillion L'ziras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,846 L'ziras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, Lerizia has designated Atylena as its capital city, and Theophilus Agistaria has just been declared ruler of Lerizia in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lerizia's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lerizia is ranked 176,562nd in the world and 22nd in World of NationStates for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 16,747.68 Standard Monetary Units.
