The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 28.474 billion Leckenbyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Leckenbyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,311 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,173 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, the annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and abortions are routinely performed in Leckenby's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Leckenby is ranked 168,856th in the world and 1st in Emirates for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -52.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
