The Republic of Leafed is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 966 million Leafedians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Leafedian economy, worth 41.5 trillion Peekees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 42,953 Peekees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leafed's national animal is the Wesley the Bucket, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Leafed is ranked 56,232nd in the world and 1st in The Arabic Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,619.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
