The Lesbian Robot Assassin of Lethodus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dax Skollvaldr with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.787 billion Daxolotls 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dreamland. The average income tax rate is 25.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Daxtastic economy, worth 177 trillion Piano keys 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Gambling, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 46,934 Piano keys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a mortuary next to every Daxtastic restaurant, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Lethodus's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atua.

Lethodus is ranked 8,325th in the world and 12th in Refugia for Most Primitive, scoring 98.86 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
