The Democratic Republic of Lentkenshield is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 329 million Lentkenshieldians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Lentkenshieldian economy, worth 14.1 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,741 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lentkenshield's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lentkenshield is ranked 196,558th in the world and 475th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -103.54 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
