The Federation of Letargia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 806 million Letargians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snail City. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Letargian economy, worth 31.0 trillion Pillows a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,486 Pillows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Letargia's national animal is the Snail, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Letargia is ranked 195,414th in the world and 220th in Refugia for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.37 crimes per hour.
