The Eternal Dread Empire of Lederland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Dread Eternal Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.624 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of the Dread Throne. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lederlandian economy, worth an astonishing 11,119 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 539,171 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. 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 1,262nd in the world and 42nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 15,405.45 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
