The Black and Yellow Republic of Lescaaris is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 612 million Lescaarch live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sogni Scintillanti. The average income tax rate is 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lescaarch economy, worth 76.2 trillion Lesmancs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 124,539 Lesmancs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Sogni Scintillanti Times is sold out, farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and sushi is sold on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lescaaris's national animal is the Blanc de Hotot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lescaaris is ranked 8,242nd in the world and 1st in The Hague for Most Inclusive, scoring 200.1 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
