The Prophecy of The Almighty Lenny is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lenny with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.661 billion Lennyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Almighty Lennyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,569 trillion foil trading cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 412,129 foil trading cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Almighty Lenny's national animal is the electric mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lennyism.

The Almighty Lenny is ranked 208,916th in the world and 5,171st in the Rejected Realms for Safest, scoring 2.37 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
