The Socialist Commune of Letskia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the National Council with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.587 billion Letskians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trost. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Letskian economy, worth 629 trillion krins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 175,383 krins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The National Council is famed for giving great back rubs, Letskian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, surveillance cameras are banned, and The National Council has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Letskia's national animal is the grey wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Letskia is ranked 158,214th in the world and 5,729th in Balder for Most Primitive, scoring -508.43 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
