The Republic of Licana is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 18.297 billion Licanans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griswall. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Licanan economy, worth a remarkable 2,447 trillion Tetras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,781 Tetras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conspiracy theorists allege Griswall's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime is almost non-existent. Licana's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Licana is ranked 32,609th in the world and 2nd in Tom Clancys Meme Team for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,302.66 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
