The Eternal Dread Empire of Lederland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Dread Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, conspicuous electricity pylons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.435 billion Lederlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of the Dread Throne. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lederlandian economy, worth an astonishing 13,768 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 541,324 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, doctors are encouraged to 'pull the plug' any time the government has a budget crisis, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lederland's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Lederland is ranked 568th in the world and 30th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 76.8 Obesity Rate.
