Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People and Government of Legalese is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Director General with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate population of 19.685 billion Legalites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legalese City. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The powerhouse Legalesean economy, worth a remarkable 2,339 trillion Legal Exchange Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,827 Legal Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, Director General is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, and political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is The Legal Cult of Margaret.

Legalese is ranked 134,483rd in the world and 70th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25.22 on the Rand Index.
