The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, digital currency, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.622 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.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenixia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sierra Loboan economy, worth a remarkable 2,817 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 292,772 lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 882,274 per year while the poor average 75,742, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sierra Lobo's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Holy Veil of the Ysl Flame.

Sierra Lobo is ranked 4,156th in the South Pacific and 114,253rd in the world for Most Devout, scoring -270 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
