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 remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate population of 19.168 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 95.0%.

The powerhouse Legalesean economy, worth a remarkable 2,273 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 118,630 Legal Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Legalese City as a backdrop, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 157,424th in the world and 93rd in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
