The Legendary Land of Layngderfleethe is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Farley with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.558 billion Legends enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Legendary economy, worth a remarkable 1,197 trillion bottle caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 215,411 bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Paradise City Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown. Layngderfleethe's national animal is the Land Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Science.

Layngderfleethe is ranked 359th in the world and 5th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 15,796.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
