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 parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.948 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of the Dread Throne. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lederlandian economy, worth an astonishing 10,122 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 534,224 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, Lederland is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, billions of Imperial Credits are being blown on orbital weapons development, and vacationing Lederlandians expect to be treated as royalty. 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 151,044th in the world and 5,248th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 22.64 Years.
