The United Republic of Lieges is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.26 billion Liegians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. 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.

Lieges's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, elections have recently been reintroduced to Lieges, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 Atheism, and its currency is the Ownuan.

Lieges is ranked 358th in Europe and 116,204th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
