The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.877 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 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 3,625 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 261,257 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lichian is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the comic book series 'Benjamin Gillis and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. 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 32,701st in the world and 52nd in Texas for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,784.67 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
