The Disputed Territories of Leaterternland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Osman Mehmed with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.548 billion Leaterternlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul Turkey. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leaterternlandian economy, worth 179 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,186 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leaterternland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Leaterternland is ranked 30,732nd in the world and 5th in Alt Earth Roleplay for Most Developed, scoring 66.44 on the Human Development Index.
