The United Republic of Levantin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Saddam with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.39 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 33.5%.

The all-consuming Levantine economy, worth 407 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 120,251 dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 408,367 per year while the poor average 26,124, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, soldiers are equipped with multi-million dinar battlesuits, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Revolutionary Thought.

Levantin is ranked 141,238th in the world and 5,754th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 46.67 on the Hayek Index.
