The Strange Nation of Featuring of Lesbonka is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 965 million Lesbonkians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Featuremania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.0%.

The strong Lesbonkic economy, worth 57.2 trillion Kaiserholdes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 59,272 Kaiserholdes, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, war memorials have been modified to include hammocks for napping, and historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lesbonka's national animal is the Dinosaur, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Lesbonka is ranked 119,675th in the world and 3rd in New Callista for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,608.47 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
