The Legends Nation of Legendsland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Legend with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.373 billion Legendslandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, 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 Lycria. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Legendslandian economy, worth 221 trillion Lyas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,261 Lyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the question of 'what is The Legend's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legendsland's national animal is the Flying Dinosaur, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Legendarianism.

Legendsland is ranked 1,632nd in the world and 636th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 48,552 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
