The Disputed Territories of Leaterternland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Osman Mehmed with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.188 billion Leaterternlandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul Turkey. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leaterternlandian economy, worth 430 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,055 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that Osman Mehmed has won three lotteries in a row, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leaterternland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Leaterternland is ranked 72,925th in the world and 3rd in Alt Earth Roleplay for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.11 on the Rand Index.
