The People and Government of Legalese is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The High Court of Legalese with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The quiet, industrious population of 14.205 billion Legalites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legalese City. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Tourism.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the government is avowedly atheist, Legalese is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legalese's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is The Legal Cult of Margaret, and its currency is the Legal Exchange Unit.

Legalese is ranked 123rd in Atlantian Oceania and 82,104th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -16 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
