The Hazy Shade of Winter of Lethodus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dax Skollvaldr with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed population of 7.997 billion Daxolotls have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saffron City. The average income tax rate is 34.9%.

The thriving Daxtastic economy, worth 492 trillion Piano Keys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,641 Piano Keys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and dessert dishes make up the Daxtastic breakfast menu. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lethodus's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cilantroism.

Lethodus is ranked 127,756th in the world and 91st in Refugia for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 40,128.92 Standard Monetary Units.
