Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Lichian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Luke MacPherson with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.562 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lichian City. The average income tax rate is 62.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lichianian economy, worth 710 trillion Gold Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,783 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Lichian, new laws have paved the way for female politicians, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lichian's national animal is the Lothian Ground Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity.

Lichian is ranked 29th in Texas and 15,899th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 26 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
