“Dirigo (I lead)”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Truckler
Location: The Great Imperialistic Empire
The Republic of Lese is a massive, devout nation, ruled by President Mamu with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 2.22 billion Leseans 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, Healthcare, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 22%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales industries.
Gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Leseite casinos, skateparks can be found in every city, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lese's national animal is the dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Lensi, and its currency is the lee.
