The Republic of Levont is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 232 million Levontians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.2%.

The powerhouse Levontian economy, worth 22.1 trillion Zalids a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 95,070 Zalids, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, Leader's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Levont's national animal is the Corrupted Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Levont is ranked 113,179th in the world and 214th in Karma for Highest Drug Use, scoring 37.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
