Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 338 million Leonfireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Leonfirean economy, worth 19.3 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 57,026 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonfire's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
