The Eternal Dread Empire of Lederland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Dread Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.997 billion Lederlandians 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lederlandian economy, worth an astonishing 11,326 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 539,431 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Lederlandian Colonial Thesaurus, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. 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 175,747th in the world and 4,372nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 17 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
