The Democratic States of Leppikania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.317 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epissiac. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,816 trillion Stars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,552 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leppikania's national animal is the cuttlefish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Leppikania is ranked 150,873rd in the world and 5th in The Embassy for Most Pro-Market, scoring 27.22 on the Rand Index.
