The Matriarchy of New Lesland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 731 million Leslanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highborough. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leslandic economy, worth 76.9 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 105,133 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Lesland's national animal is the killer whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Lesland is ranked 6,292nd in the world and 1st in The Known Lands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,860.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
