Upper Libertatem

Population684 million

The Free Land of Upper Libertatem is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, feral children, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 684 million Upper Libertatemians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Administration and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarchia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Upper Libertatemian economy, worth 76.1 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 111,237 gold bars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,008 per year while the poor average 16,725, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Upper Libertatem's national animal is the rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Upper Libertatem is ranked 19,496th in the world and 274th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 40.24 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
