The Commonwealth of Lichenitza is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Radeesh the Amused with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.564 billion Lichenitzans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itzamumu. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lichenitzan economy, worth 206 trillion Quatloos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,814 Quatloos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Radeesh the Amused performing the Full-Monty are selling out, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lichenitza's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Lichenitza is ranked 6,737th in the world and 217th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.2 Years.
