Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People and Government of Legalese is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Director General with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate population of 20.214 billion Legalites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 95.8%.

The all-consuming Legalesean economy, worth a remarkable 2,488 trillion Legal Exchange Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,122 Legal Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legalese's national animal is the Eagle and its national religion is The Legal Cult of Margaret.

Legalese is ranked 11,193rd in the world and 21st in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,468.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
