It is compulsary for all Lendosan citizens to be issued with an identification card. All medium-to-long-term visitors to Lendosa and all ambassadorial staff who intend to leave their embassies are also required to have such a card. A sample is displayed below.
The card is plastic, and about the size of a credit card. It displays a photo of the holder on the right and a Lendosan graphic on the right (incorperating both a map of the Lendosa region and the Lendosan national symbol), fading to white in the centre. In the center are details about the person. In this example, the person is Citizen Maria Perenez. Her address, given below her name and salutation, is 14 Via dala Fontes, in the city of Gloria Libertatis, Lendia. Beneath that is her current occupation, an accountant. Underneath her photograph is her date of birth, in day-month-year format (as is standard in Lendosa). If Citizen Perenez were a government official of any sort, this would also be displayed.
The card itself has many functions. It is, for example, the primary means for interaction with the Ligasano, which allows things such as electronic financial transactions. The card is, of course, electronic, containing considerably more information than is visible on its surface. On modern cards, the information stored is quite considerable, and the cards can be used for anything from library cards to security passes.
