The Meritocratic Sovereignty of Lerasi is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 596 million Lerasians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolorem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.3%.

The strong Lerasian economy, worth 33.0 trillion drakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 55,394 drakes, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lerasi's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lerasi is ranked 75,955th in the world and 1,695th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 86.28232672372 Days.
