The Canonically Apotheosized God of Lerasi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Keinthurah with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.16 billion Lerasians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruins of Dolorem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.2%.

The strong Lerasian economy, worth 232 trillion drakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 55,919 drakes, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Keinthurah has just been declared ruler of Lerasi in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lerasi's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lerasi is ranked 201,035th in the world and 7,185th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.87 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
