The People and Government of Legalese is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Director General with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 28.853 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, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legalese City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Legalite economy, worth a remarkable 4,551 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 157,730 Legal Exchange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", many friends and relatives of Director General have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and Director General is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. 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 2,398th in the world and 2nd in Anaia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.8 years.
