Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Lichian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.984 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 prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 13.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 1,983 trillion Gold Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 220,774 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime is totally unknown. Lichian's national animal is the Lothian Ground Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaeo-Christianity.

Lichian is ranked 128,550th in the world and 120th in Texas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.45 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
