The Indissolvable Empire of Lieges is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Atritus IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.542 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riceau. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

People are moving into treehouses in record numbers, Lieges's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives. 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 84th in Europe and 10,984th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 406.75 Net Tourists per hour.
