The Federal Republic of Lesinteil is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Finrod Felagund with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 802 million Lesinteilians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indrawel. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lesinteil economy, worth 81.2 trillion Letaras 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 Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,269 Letaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Finrod Felagund is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, bars are packed at all hours, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lesinteil's national animal is the Koala Beer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lesinteil is ranked 141,108th in the world and 5,863rd in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.68 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
