The Republic of Lichian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Luke MacPherson with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.398 billion 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. The average income tax rate is 73%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, billions of Gold Ducats are being blown on orbital weapons development, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 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.
