Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rim Empire of Legital is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Rose II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.361 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riloft. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The all-consuming Legitalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,252 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,615 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the LBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legital's national animal is the Raven, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Legital is ranked 10,652nd in the world and 1st in Spacium for Most Income Equality, scoring 83.02 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
