The Unitary Kritarchy of Glycyrrhiza is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Honourable Zelkova with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 19.704 billion Glycyrrhizans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 61.4%.

The powerhouse Glycyrrhizan economy, worth a remarkable 1,936 trillion Ouguiyas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 98,297 Ouguiyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Aides are afraid to ask if The Honourable Zelkova wants a cup of tea or coffee, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, and people say chess victor The Honourable Zelkova can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Glycyrrhiza's national animal is the Peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Asatru.

Glycyrrhiza is ranked 116,328th in the world and 3rd in Stanford for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,374.31 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
