The Democratic States of Leppikania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.976 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, 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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,036 trillion Stars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,608 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for Leppikania in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 128,390th in the world and 10th in The Embassy for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
