Latveria is located between the nations of Hungary, Serbia, and Romania. Surrounded by the Carpathians to the north and the Malhela range to the south, Latveria has remained protected from the strife of neighbouring countries. Its current reigning monarch, Sebastian von Doom, has kept the nation protected from international affairs and economic downturns. Doom's personal patents in the field of high technology and specially robotics are the main export of the country. The population consists of mixed European stock and gypsies, in whose welfare von Doom takes a particular interest. The country has doubled in size in both population and territory since its successful invasion of the neighboring country Symkaria.
Latveria boasts freedom from the racism that the Roma (gypsies) are greeted with in other countries. Due to technological advancements far beyond anything in any other nation Latveria has managed to remain unfoulled by industrial pollutants. Because of Doom's many weapons and his mere presence in Latveria the country is considered a world superpower. Despite (or perhaps because of) its complete lack of a native super-hero populace, Latveria boasts an unparalleled rate of safety. The nation is policed by guardian robots designed and manufactured by Doom himself. Due to Doom's constant activities that drive him away from Latveria, the monarch is often absent. Doom uses robotic versions of himself to keep the peace while he's away.
