The Sha'abist Republic of Lerab is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Uday Badil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.385 billion Lerabies 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Al Habar. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lerabian economy, worth 295 trillion Lerabie golden Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,283 Lerabie golden Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, sweet-toothed Lerabies have been left penniless by the VAT on candy, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Lerab, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lerab's national animal is the Lerabie Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Lerab is ranked 60,857th in the world and 19th in Middle East for Highest Economic Output, with 295 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
