Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of L E F is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Eugen with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.727 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stronghold of Terror. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The thriving L E Fian economy, worth a remarkable 4,631 trillion Leus 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 203,780 Leus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,017,380 per year while the poor average 22,980, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

Retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, Stronghold of Terror is a police state during international summits, and pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil. 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 Catholic.

L E F is ranked 148,615th in the world and 4,337th in Osiris for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.42 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
