Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Lieges is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.139 billion Liègians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 1,484 trillion Ownuans a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,382 Ownuans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, contestants on Lieges's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. 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 181,057th in the world and 573rd in Europe for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.96 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
