The Watch how I Soar Nation of A Leaf on the Wind is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ephraim Barnes with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.134 billion BrownCoats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Leaf on the Windian economy, worth 357 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,941 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, sick days are on the rise, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Leaf on the Wind's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mirandaism.

A Leaf on the Wind is ranked 125,292nd in the world and 3,721st in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 827.58 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
