The Free Land of Leton is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Andrestom with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.979 billion Letonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 19.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Letonian economy, worth 955 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 191,897 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", the entire entry for Leton in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', tourists are forbidden to enter Native Letonian lands, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow. Crime is totally unknown. Leton's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Leton is ranked 7,106th in the world and 399th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 191,897.87 Standard Monetary Units.
