The Empire of Edenlegaia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Saris Cross with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 12.735 billion Laethanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lis-Salith. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Laethanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,891 trillion Zennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 148,542 Zennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edenlegaia's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
