The Eternal Dread Empire of Lederland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Dread Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.279 billion Lederlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of the Dread Throne. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Lederlandian economy, worth an astonishing 11,833 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 531,150 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, the government spends millions of Imperial Credits every year prosecuting spammers, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Humans and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lederland's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Lederland is ranked 959th in the world and 87th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 13,489.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
