The Fourth Fatherland Empire of Meridionalis Lettonia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Vesuvia Sabiniana Caesar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.407 billion Lettonians 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 relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vindelicorum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.5%.

The strong Lettonian economy, worth 152 trillion Lettonian Imperial Pias a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 63,370 Lettonian Imperial Pias, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, a major religion has been named as Meridionalis Lettonia's national religion, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meridionalis Lettonia's national animal is the Wild Rubiconian Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Meridionalis Lettonia is ranked 239,712th in the world and 91st in The Free Nations Region for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 27.58 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
