The Federal Soviet Republics of Letnev is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chairman Zhukov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.626 billion Letnevians 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 large, 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 Turov. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Letnevian economy, worth 679 trillion Rubles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,928 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Letnev's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Northern Orthodox.

Letnev is ranked 1,738th in the world and 2nd in New Septentrion for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 12,715.48 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
