The Democratic States of Leppikania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.653 billion Leppiks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epissiac. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth 631 trillion Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,777 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, billions are being spent on a new island airport, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leppikania's national animal is the pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Leppikania is ranked 151,739th in the world and 27th in Wintermoore for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -222.95 on the Hayek Index.
