The Community of Libeenes is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 381 million Libeenesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Libeenesian economy, worth 34.5 trillion Trades a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,444 Trades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Libeenes's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Libeenes is ranked 30,420th in the world and 492nd in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 48.06 quips per hour.
