The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.732 billion Sierra Loboans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.
The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sierra Lobo's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Holy Veil of the Ysl Flame, and its currency is the lira.
