The Holy Empire of L E F is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Eugen with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.383 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternal City. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse L E Fian economy, worth a remarkable 4,921 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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 amazing 210,464 Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,063,983 per year while the poor average 23,152, a ratio of 46.0 to 1.

L E Fian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. L E F's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

L E F is ranked 1,813th in the world and 1st in Greater Olympus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 9,380.41 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
