The United Republic of Lieges is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 4.494 billion Liegians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth 608 trillion Ownuans a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,389 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, bicyclists are banned from major roads, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lieges is ranked 144th in Europe and 55,686th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.322 Stalins.
