The United Republic of Levantin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Saddam with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.129 billion Levantines 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Ayn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.8%.

The all-consuming Levantine economy, worth 368 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 117,768 dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,738 per year while the poor average 28,839, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, organ donation is compulsory, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, and citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Levantin's national animal is the murder hornet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Islam.

Levantin is ranked 99,730th in the world and 3,798th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 858.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
