The Standing Peoples of Lergland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leggy Lemonadus with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.773 billion Lergs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leggington. The average income tax rate is 73.9%.

The powerhouse Lerglish economy, worth 496 trillion legs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,956 legs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, students do more community service than homework, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lergland's national animal is the daddy long leg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lergland is ranked 34,427th in the world and 19th in Hippy Haven for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 166.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
