The Latverian Embassy was the diplomatic mission from the nation of Latveria. Located in the shadow of the United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan's Lenox Hill on Lexington Avenue[1]. In this building Doctor Doom ruled absolultly as the embassy is out of bonds to United States police and military establishments, allowing him diplomatic immunity. If any "superhero" tried to attack the building it was considered an act of war and a diplomatic nightmare for the United States.
