Regional Influence: Squire
Location: the South Pacific
|Leader||Alfonzo D Ferguson|
The Federation of Lioniel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Alfonzo D Ferguson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.602 billion Lionielians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalania. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Lionielia economy, worth a remarkable 1,615 trillion Patronuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,377 Patronuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lioniel's national animal is the Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
