|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 smutty television, vat-grown people, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.316 billion Crestians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
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 41.2%.
The powerhouse Lester Crestian economy, worth 157 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 119,985 Crests, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
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, every workday begins with group therapy, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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.
