The Imperium of Leonism is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.797 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leestcheck. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 2,591 trillion Imperialmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 264,537 Imperialmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, Max Barry is this year's Miss Leonism, and the police double as repo men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonism's national animal is the Blaumeise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Leonism is ranked 206,035th in the world and 7,722nd in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -14.42 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
