The Republic of Lese is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Mamu with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The quiet, industrious population of 4.453 billion Leseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 10.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lesean economy, worth 172 trillion lees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,826 lees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Leseite casinos, skateparks can be found in every city, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lese's national animal is the dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Lensi.

Lese is ranked 103,728th in the world and 29th in Conglomeracy for Most Authoritarian, with 0.14 Stalins.
