The Magno Vicipaedia (Latin for "[the] Great Encyclopedia"), published by the Nationalibus institutum de historia, is a Latin-language encyclopedia of events in the history of Liberta, that served some sort of major importance, these events often being of cultural or political importance. It is written by more than 200 professors and consules. The 5th and latest edition published in 2000, which spans more than 8 volumes, 20 chapters, and more than 5000 pages.

Magno Vicipaedia is the oldest Latin-language based encyclopedia still in production to this day, however, the 5th version has also been written in English, making the encyclopedia more appealing to the general public. It is to this day still valued as exponentially important when analyzing and understanding Libertan history. History up until the 11th century, the Magno Vicipaedia is the only trusted source of information during that time. It has not only trusted because of the time immemorial but also because the Libertan State fact-checked the information before publishing. The highly uncorrupted governance of the Libertan State gives, according to analysts, a small chance of the potential intentional change of the information in the encyclopedia because of intended political distortion of reality, such as propaganda. Between the ages of 200-500 AD, many have criticized the trustworthiness of the Magno Vicipaedia due to the strong nationalistic ideas during that age. However, the objective and informative formulations have shrunken the potential possibility of a political distortion. The first edition of Magno Vicipaedia published the year 0 AD. It was officially published by the Nationalibus institutum de historia and was copied 20 times. They are all currently in the National Archives section of the National Library, they are all strictly monitored and are not available to the public, except in digital format. Each edition thereafter was published every 500 years.

The Magno Vicipaedia is sorted into 8 volumes, each one divided into different sort of events. It is also sorted into sub-subdivisions, these are best known as chapters, and there is 20 total of them, each chapter for every century.
