The Solist Empire of Lenlyvit is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, aversion to nipples, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cynical population of 18.99 billion Lenlyvitians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savaria. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lenlyvitian economy, worth a remarkable 2,688 trillion Lens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 141,599 Lens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Lenlyvitians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lenlyvit's national animal is the Lenlyvalk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Solism.

Lenlyvit is ranked 273,140th in the world and 709th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 27.19 Whatever.
