The Selenian Federation of Lisbane is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Boris Yeltsin with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.258 billion Selenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Selenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,689 trillion Rubles a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 137,859 Rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,127,485 per year while the poor average 3,612, a ratio of 312 to 1.

Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, and political detractors refer to Boris Yeltsin as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lisbane's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Lisbane is ranked 179,400th in the world and 314th in Enadia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
