The United Republic of Lieges is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.346 billion Liègians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,715 trillion Ownuans a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 227,291 Ownuans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem. 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 1,388th in the world and 23rd in Europe for Safest, scoring 148.19 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
