The Ancient City-State of Lyontisia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alulim with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 19.77 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyontisian economy, worth a remarkable 6,136 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 310,388 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 206,606th in the world and 8,129th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
