The People's Socialist Union of Leskya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Daniel Akerman with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.952 billion Leskyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Leskyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Valuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 282,825 Valuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Golden Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Leskya's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Leskya is ranked 634th in the world and 1st in United Nations of Earthlings for Smartest Citizens, with 241.71 Quips Per Hour.
