Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Lieges is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.368 billion Liègians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,869 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 impressive 199,511 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the government funds large training centres to turn Phoenixes into functioning members of society, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 175,248th in the world and 905th in Europe for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23.11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
