The Republic of Ligars is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 357 million Ligarsians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miedemaport. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ligarsian economy, worth 35.2 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,629 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, Ligars successfully hosted the the West Pacific Olympics, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ligars's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ligars is ranked 172,647th in the world and 5,558th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
