The Equatorial Bulge of Lislandia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alexa Downeaster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.824 billion Lislandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiwahiwa. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lislandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,237 trillion lisles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 212,478 lisles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime is totally unknown. Lislandia's national animal is the harloquin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baba Yetu.

Lislandia is ranked 772nd in the world and 1st in Conch Kingdom for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,895.7 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
