The Dancing Plagues of Levont is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Poseidon with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.646 billion Levontians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Levontian economy, worth 888 trillion Levs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 191,274 Levs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All the playground's a stage for Levontian schoolchildren, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, and it is often said that only Poseidon could bring down Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Levont's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hellenic.

Levont is ranked 76,054th in the world and 99th in Karma for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,296.15 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
