The Republic of Liata is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leila with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.948 billion Liatans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piryllae. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Liatan economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Litens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 141,580 Litens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Liten treacle machine, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime is totally unknown. Liata's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Liata is ranked 235,486th in the world and 240th in NationStates for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 34.18 Whatever.
