The Colony Leader of Likar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emira Shiva with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 5.917 billion Likari have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beirut. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Likari economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 trillion Biters a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,879 Biters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Biters, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime is totally unknown. Likar's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Temeism.

Likar is ranked 15,790th in the world and 26th in Novus Lucidum for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.99 Bank.
