Agents of STRIKE
A small Balkan country that broke away from the USSR during the fall of the Soviet Union, Latveria had a tumultuous history of violent revolutions until it was taken over by Victor Von Doom in 2007. Since then, it has known (relative) peace, but Von Doom’s rule is tyrannical and despotic.
Latveria has incredible technological advancements and makes a great deal of its wealth off of weapons exports, primarily to Russia. However, there is significant economic and education inequality in the country, making it not uncommon for a soldier in a robotic battle-suit to stomp by the house of an illiterate peasant who does not have running water.
Von Doom claims he is attempting to rectify the massive social problems in his country, but the rest of the world remains skeptical. Currently, the situation is considered too politically complicated to rectify by force.
