The Legends Nation of Legendsland is a huge, safe nation, ruled by The Legend with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 885 million Legendslandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lycria. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Legendslandian economy, worth 132 trillion Lyas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,325 Lyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legendsland's national animal is the Flying Dinosaur, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Legendsland is ranked 158,757th in the world and 8,561st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -143.87 on the Hayek Index.
