The Republic of Leslau is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 2.103 billion Leslauans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Leslauan economy, worth 80.0 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 38,052 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Harry Potter books are banned, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leslau's national animal is the lion.

Leslau is ranked 97,046th in the world and 2,104th in Suspicious for Best Weather, with 106 meters of sunlight.
