The Dominion of Litchenstienen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Enrick Rondle with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.08 billion Litchenstienenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt der Lieder. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Litchenstienenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,106 trillion Nuyens 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 major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,203 Nuyens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 2,109th in the world and 67th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 96.77 on the Human Development Index.
