The Empire of Litchenstienen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alola Rondle with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.652 billion Litchenstienenians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Lieder. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Litchenstienenian economy, worth a remarkable 7,004 trillion Nuyens a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 657,599 Nuyens, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, Alola Rondle's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and paraplegics are told to walk it off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Litchenstienen's national animal is the Palm Top Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Litchenstienen is ranked 255,704th in the world and 6,206th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.92 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
