The Democratic States of Leppikania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.479 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epissiac. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion Stars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,913 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned cuttlefishball fields, skateparks can be found in every city, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. 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 1,894th in the world and 1st in The Embassy for Most Inclusive, scoring 302.06 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
