  • There is no electricity bill in Libya, and it all free for the citizens.
  • There is no interest in bank loan, and loan is provided by bank to all the citizens with no interest.

  • Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming
    land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kick- start their farms
    – all for free.
  • If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya,
    the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US
    $2, 300/mth accommodation and car allowance.
  • In Libyan, if a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidized 50% of the price.
  • The price of petrol in Libya is $0. 14 per liter.
  • Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now
    frozen globally.
  • If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation the state would
    pay the average salary of the profession as if he or she is employed until
    employment is found.
  • A portion of Libyan oil sale is, credited directly to the bank accounts of all
    Libyan citizens.
  •  A mother who gave birth to a child receive US $5 ,000
  • 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $ 0.15
  • 25% of Libyans have a university degree
