The Republic of St Lennys Island is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Enquiry with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.66 billion St Lennyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Danicalese. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient St Lennys Islandian economy, worth 883 trillion Jelly sweets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,664 Jelly sweets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, dreams of entering the Super League have been relegated to the history books, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why General Enquiry is a silly poophead. Crime is totally unknown. St Lennys Island's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pluviophilism.

St Lennys Island is ranked 97,354th in the world and 545th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,383.22 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
