The Most Serene Republic of Lebarestan is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.242 billion Lebarians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lana. The average income tax rate is 28.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lebarestanian economy, worth 148 trillion Xuqs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 119,877 Xuqs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, and if you die during a restaurant meal the government will pick up the bill. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lebarestan's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Lebarestan is ranked 222,028th in the world and 7,227th in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -204.62 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
