The Holy Empire of L E F is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Eugen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.391 billion L E Fians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stronghold of Terror. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales.

The government spends millions of tax Leus on vouchers to pay for expensive private schools, the government is reining in public spending, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. L E F's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Catholic, and its currency is the Leu.

L E F is ranked 141st in Lazarus and 2,210th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 19 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
