The Federal Soviet Republics of Letnev is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Zhukov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.919 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 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Letnevian economy, worth 577 trillion Rubles a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 147,456 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable, many friends and relatives of Chairman Zhukov have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. 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 19,712th in the world and 5th in New Septentrion for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 298,032.34 Standard Monetary Units.
