Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.809 billion Lichians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mhialn. The average income tax rate is 10.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 2,749 trillion Gold Ducats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 254,382 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, lending money has become a major liability, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels. Crime is totally unknown. Lichian's national animal is the Lothian Ground Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity.

Lichian is ranked 27,217th in the world and 89th in Texas for Largest Black Market, with 4.26 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
