The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.941 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 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 4,579 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 255,256 Gold Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, more citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, in a fit of passion Benjamin Gillis has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and the Lichian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel. 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 28,805th in the world and 30th in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,812.42 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
