Liberalism is a hidden value which indicates whether a nation's population values freedom or security more in social matters. The higher a nation's liberalism is, the more members of its population are liberals.

Liberalism is increased by Arts Subsidies, Community Policing, a pro-evolution stance on Creationism, and a Race Discrimination Act.

Liberalism is decreased by a pro-creationism stance on Creationism, the Death Penalty, Gated Communities, strict Handgun Laws, a Married Tax Allowance, and a high rate of Violent Crime.
