Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rim Empire of Legital is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Rose II with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.878 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 2,342 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 168,762 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff'. 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 139,204th in the world and 1st in Spacium for Most Devout, with 6.06 Prayers Per Hour.
