The Co-Grand Duchy of Leepaidamba is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by co-Grand Dukes David I and Anna I with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.989 billion Leepaidambans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apeldoorn. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, guns are banned, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown. Leepaidamba's national animal is the rabit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Antipantheism, and its currency is the Amban Florin.
