The First Ambassadorial State of Legatus I is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princeps Venustus with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.516 billion Meritocrats are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Embassy City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The powerhouse Legatus Iian economy, worth 913 trillion New Merits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 55,309 New Merits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 187,828 per year while the poor average 12,015, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Princeps Venustus has just been declared ruler of Legatus I in an international press conference, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, voting is voluntary, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Legatus I's national animal is the Baron, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Meritocracy.

Legatus I is ranked 35,750th in the world and 8th in The New Meritocracy for Most Stationary, with 797.00085797468 days.
