The State of Levantin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ea-Nasir with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.325 billion Levantines 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artaxias. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.3%.

The all-consuming Levantine economy, worth 532 trillion coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 123,197 coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 416,259 per year while the poor average 26,968, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Water fights now end with thousands dead, Levantine soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Levantin flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Levantin's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sun Worship - Christianity.

Levantin is ranked 81,539th in the world and 2,715th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,893.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
