The Federal Republic of Lesinteil is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Finrod Felagund with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.996 billion Lesinteili are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, 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 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lesinteil economy, worth 475 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,650 Letaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Lesinteil's border, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown. Lesinteil's national animal is the Koala Beer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Valinoranism.

Lesinteil is ranked 23,682nd in the world and 459th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 217.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
