The Nomadic Peoples of Lesfield is a small, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 40 million Lesfieldians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Lesfieldian economy, worth 201 billion Subbies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 5,028 Subbies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, torture is illegal, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lesfield's national animal is the Kate, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lesfield is ranked 253,071st in the world and 361st in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
