The Republic of Lisokyo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ekit with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.705 billion Lisokyoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enso. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lisokyoan economy, worth 140 trillion Kaikishes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,318 Kaikishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Lisokyoan mussels the biggest in 10000 Islands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lisokyo's national animal is the Water Anole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lisokyo is ranked 106,130th in the world and 361st in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 0.34 Weapons Per Person.
