The Republic of Lichian is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Luke MacPherson with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.08 billion Lichians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lichian City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. Lichian's national animal is the Lothian Ground Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity, and its currency is the Gold Ducat.

Lichian is ranked 11th in Texas and 2,764th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 39 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
