LeaderRadeesh the Amused


The Commonwealth of Lichenitza is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Radeesh the Amused with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.007 billion Lichenitzans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itzamumu. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichenitzan economy, worth 106 trillion Quatloos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,854 Quatloos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lichenitza's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Lichenitza is ranked 138,092nd in the world and 6,483rd in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.29 Obesity Rate.
