The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.121 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 17.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 3,423 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 260,883 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, Lichian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and Benjamin Gillis can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids. 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 10,808th in the world and 18th in Texas for Safest, scoring 118.49 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
