The Leoust

The Republic of The Leoust is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 613 million Leoustians 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Leoustian economy, worth 20.0 trillion bits 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 Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, 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 32,579 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Leoust's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Leoust is ranked 87,442nd in the world and 11th in Fantasies for Most Influential, scoring 103 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
