The Holy Empire of Lilisk is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Alryda Lyberth with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The devout population of 3.474 billion Liliskians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Åsmund. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Liliskian economy, worth 232 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,985 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, Arctic fox sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lilisk's national animal is the arctic fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lilisk is ranked 24,256th in the world and 695th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.3 bananas ingested per day.
