The Republic of Leser is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.924 billion Leserians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Leserian economy, worth a remarkable 3,723 trillion cashes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 375,198 cashes, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, game show contestants scramble to fish trash out of the South Byk Sea, and gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours. Crime is totally unknown. Leser's national animal is the byk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Leser is ranked 365th in the world and 11th in Osiris for Rudest Citizens, with 497.81 Insults Per Minute.
