The Rim Empire of Legital is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.768 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riloft. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, notable individuals are granted land and titles, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legital's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Imperial Cult, and its currency is the Credit.

Legital is ranked 1st in Spacium and 62,287th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.322 Stalins.
