LeaderLord Protector Louis Alderman


The Alderist Empire of Lerasi is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Lord Protector Louis Alderman with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 768 million Lerasians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolorem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.3%.

The strong Lerasian economy, worth 42.6 trillion drakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 55,519 drakes, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, agricultural employees work for peanuts, pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, and Lord Protector Louis Alderman has just been declared ruler of Lerasi in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lerasi's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lerasi is ranked 127,545th in the world and 5,401st in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -1.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
