Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Lei Ho Ye is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rugal with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.312 billion Lei Ho Yans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dim Sum Gai. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lei Ho Yean economy, worth a remarkable 1,867 trillion Ho Lei Poes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 255,347 Ho Lei Poes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lei Ho Ye's national animal is the Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lei Ho Ye is ranked 40,866th in the world and 53rd in Wintreath for Most Authoritarian, with 0.55 Stalins.
