The People's Autonomous Communes of Leskya is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Brother Yathmir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.487 billion Leskyans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naturkomo-Makeo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Leskyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,941 trillion laboroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 299,282 laboroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Leskya's national animal is the pied crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Leskya is ranked 1,986th in the world and 2nd in United Forum of Nations for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 6,575.63 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
