|Animal||Lothian Ground Llama|
The Republic of Lichian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Gillis with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.043 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 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 14.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lichian economy, worth a remarkable 3,127 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 259,662 Gold Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, anti-government web sites are springing up, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. 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.
