The Kaizerreik of Lethen Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaizer Luka IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.78 billion Lethens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunikė. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lethen economy, worth 387 trillion royal coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 139,246 royal coins, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Lethen radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, hunters often become the hunted, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lethen Empire's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lethen Empire is ranked 27,376th in the world and 1st in Koningsplatz Alliance for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,291.5 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
