The United Provinces of Legendus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gabriel McGowan with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.72 billion Legendians 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, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malkovro City. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Legendese economy, worth a remarkable 1,645 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,962 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Armed security details escort librarians to their homes, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and Legendus's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legendus's national animal is the caribou, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Legendus is ranked 235,724th in the world and 247th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.15 weapons per person.
