Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Lieges is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.953 billion Liègians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,442 trillion Ownuans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 181,424 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Lieges's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, sex changes are routinely performed at Lieges's hospitals, unemployed taxi drivers ironically use self-driving cabs to reach employment offices, and 90% of active duty LAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. 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 3,430th in the world and 42nd in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,817.17 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
