The People and Government of Legalese is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Director General with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.981 billion Legalites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legalese City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Legalesean economy, worth a remarkable 3,939 trillion Legal Exchange Units 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 157,718 Legal Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Legal Cult of Margaret.

Legalese is ranked 151,956th in the world and 182nd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Pro-Market, scoring -79.78 on the Rand Index.
