The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.377 billion Lichians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mhialn. The average income tax rate is 11.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 2,920 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 256,668 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Benjamin Gillis to meetings with foreign heads of state, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption. 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 179,872nd in the world and 184th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
