The Confederacy of Lelmpop is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 1.542 billion Lelmpopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The sizeable but inefficient Lelmpopian economy, worth 67.1 trillion Canadian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 43,489 Canadian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lelmpop's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lelmpop is ranked 64,107th in the world and 2,250th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 75.18 Years.
