|Leader||Supreme Leader Crest|
The Armed Republic of Lester Crest is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Crest with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.146 billion Crestians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lestoid Crestoid. The average income tax rate is 39.9%.
The all-consuming Lester Crestian economy, worth 136 trillion Crests 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 119,517 Crests, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
The letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, 90% of active duty LCAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lester Crest's national animal is the Stick, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
