Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Lieges is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.9 billion Liègians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,024 trillion Ownuans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,482 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lieges's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lieges is ranked 55,862nd in the world and 323rd in Europe for Most Authoritarian, with 0.32 Stalins.
