The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by LEADER with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.817 billion TheSourceans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL. The average income tax rate is 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient TheSourcean economy, worth a remarkable 8,837 trillion CURRENCIES a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 233,686 CURRENCIES, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. TheSource's national animal is the ANIMAL, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is FAITH.

TheSource is ranked 222,217th in the world and 113th in Nederland for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -14.83 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
