The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.416 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 16.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 3,238 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 260,826 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity.

Lichian is ranked 30,117th in the world and 33rd in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,745.47 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
