Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lichian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.715 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Administration and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mhialn. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion Gold Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 169,376 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Gold Ducats to support "struggling" industries, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, artists are pillars of society, and the police insist that racism does not exist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lichian's national animal is the Lothian Ground Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity.

Lichian is ranked 146,590th in the world and 145th in Texas for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.12 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
