The Grand Duchy of Leixum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.155 billion Leixumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leixum City. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leixumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,775 trillion Ings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,254 Ings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leixum's national animal is the Whippet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Leixum is ranked 3,168th in the world and 101st in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 96.33 on the Human Development Index.
