Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.079 billion Lichians 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 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 8.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 2,491 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 247,202 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities. 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 123,330th in the world and 115th in Texas for Most Authoritarian, with 0.03 Stalins.
