The AnarchoIdiotism of Lessoni is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Top Fool with an iron fist, and renowned for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.935 billion Lessonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 10000934. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lessonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion Bitcoins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 394,465 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lessoni's national animal is the Weeaboo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bad Decisions.

Lessoni is ranked 368th in the world and 1st in The Allied Republic for Most Secular, with 99.21 Atheism Rate.
