The Dominion of Litchenstienen is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Enrick Rondle with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, digital currency, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.449 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 medium-sized, 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 income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Litchenstienenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,043 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. Average income is an amazing 316,882 Nuyens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Litchenstienen Blood Tithe, glamping Litchenstienenians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. 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 26,495th in the world and 1,154th in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 1,867.83 milliStalins.
