The Democratic Republic of North Leasath is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 190 million North Leasathians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.2%.

The strong North Leasathian economy, worth 10.6 trillion Reais a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,794 Reais, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 188,199 per year while the poor average 12,244, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Visitors to North Leasath are microchipped and must be escorted by a North Leasathian soldier - even to the bathroom, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Leasath's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

North Leasath is ranked 134,396th in the world and 5,026th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,102.82 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
