The Ancient City-State of Lyontisia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alulim with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 17.829 billion Lyontisians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumer. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyontisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,570 trillion Crops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 312,437 Crops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lyontisia's national animal is the Auroch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Pantheon of the Annunaki.

Lyontisia is ranked 785th in the world and 12th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 12,704.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
