The Kingdom of Loendersteer is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Enrico Castello with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 2.396 billion Loendersteerians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centerdur City. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Loendersteerian economy, worth 243 trillion Helmets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,731 Helmets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Loendersteer's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian.

Loendersteer is ranked 197,391st in the world and 969th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.64 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
