The Federal Republic of Lithianien is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Reshir Arlen with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.788 billion Lithianians 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lithia. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lithianian economy, worth 433 trillion Lithan Francs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,512 Lithan Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, Lithianien's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lithianien's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Lithianien is ranked 47,291st in the world and 38th in International Democratic Union for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
