The Grand Duchy of Leixum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 25.052 billion Leixumians 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.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leixum City. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leixumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,206 trillion Ings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,009 Ings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leixum's national animal is the Whippet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Leixum is ranked 277,742nd in the world and 6,727th in Balder for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -32.05 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
