The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.821 billion Lichians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal 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 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 5,795 trillion Gold Ducats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 253,948 Gold Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift baskets often contain working nukes, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, the military has gone fission for more funding, and foreign policy is based upon the principle of sieve and take. 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 312,809th in the world and 124th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -27.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
