Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Republic of Lieges is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.45 billion Liègians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Liegesian economy, worth 462 trillion Ownuans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,909 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Lieges's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lieges's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lieges is ranked 90th in Europe and 16,453rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 13 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
