The Indissolvable Empire of Lieges is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Atritus IV with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.124 billion Liegesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riceau. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, all marriages are arranged by the government, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Anselism, and its currency is the Ownuan.

Lieges is ranked 365th in Europe and 118,447th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
