|Leader||Supreme Leader Crest|
The Armed Republic of Lester Crest is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Crest with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.475 billion Crestians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, 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 Lestoid Crestoid. The average income tax rate is 41.3%.
The all-consuming Lester Crestian economy, worth 177 trillion Crests a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,321 Crests, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Every workday begins with group therapy, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, it's said that Supreme Leader Crest can turn every pleasure into a chore, and the diplomatic corps stinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lester Crest's national animal is the Stick, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
