The Democratic Republic of Libate is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Kurt Schmidt with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 21.841 billion Libateans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olland. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Libatean economy, worth a remarkable 2,101 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,209 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, birth rates have hit an all-time low, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and foreign football clubs wave the Libatean flag before every game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Libate's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Libate is ranked 48,408th in the world and 65th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Politically Free, scoring 76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
