The The 14th Ambassadorial State of Legatus XIV is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.144 billion Ambassadors enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The thriving Legatus XIVian economy, worth 457 trillion New Merits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 50,019 New Merits, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, arbitration is mightier than the sword, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Legatus XIV's national animal is the Baron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Legatus XIV is ranked 102,334th in the world and 3rd in The New Meritocracy for Most Average, scoring 39.31 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
