The Democratic States of Leppikania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.173 billion Leppiks enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epissiac. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Leppikanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,774 trillion Stars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,777 Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Epissiac as a backdrop. 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 153,491st in the world and 5th in The Embassy for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25 on the Rand Index.
