The Holy Empire of L E F is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Lord Eugen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.603 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stronghold of Terror. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.8%.

The frighteningly efficient L E Fian economy, worth a remarkable 3,708 trillion Leus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 199,328 Leus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 838,682 per year while the poor average 30,742, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

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 a very well-funded police force. L E F's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholic.

L E F is ranked 235th in Lazarus and 7,545th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 2.589 Stalins.
