The Canton of Leichtstetten is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ueli Schiffer with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.89 billion Leichtstetteners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heimstadt. The average income tax rate is 17.3%.

The strong Leichtstettenian economy, worth 123 trillion Leichtstetten Frankens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,791 Leichtstetten Frankens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Leichtstetten's national animal is the Rabbit.

Leichtstetten is ranked 197,722nd in the world and 7,152nd in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.64 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
