The United Republic of Lieges is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Potrus Soustas with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.283 billion Liègians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricads. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Liegesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,098 trillion Ownuans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,178 Ownuans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 65,306th in the world and 422nd in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,346.39 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
