The Republic of Reliqua is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, devout population of 110 million Reliquans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 14.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Reliquan economy, worth 8.69 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,034 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, most believe 'tis better to give than to receive, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. Crime is totally unknown. Reliqua's national animal is the Mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Reliqua is ranked 139,489th in the world and 7,573rd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.19 Obesity Rate.
