The Holy Empire of Lilisk is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 380 million Liliskians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pinesville. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Liliskian economy, worth 19.7 trillion Lilums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,769 Lilums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, conspiracy theorists allege Pinesville's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, Lilisk has designated Pinesville as its capital city, and the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lilisk's national animal is the Pomeranian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lilisk is ranked 52,733rd in the world and 2,387th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 99.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
