Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Leppikania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.426 billion Leppiks 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare 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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth 746 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 137,623 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leppiks refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, the Leppikania Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and Nick can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. 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 171,354th in the world and 21st in The Embassy for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.
