The Democratic States of Leppikania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.281 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth 927 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 147,635 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. 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 6,346th in the world and 1st in The Embassy for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 93.03 Effective Tax Rate.
