The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.528 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, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Education and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. 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 3,883 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 310,001 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Sierra Lobo after the ban on emigration was lifted. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sierra Lobo's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Holy Veil of the Ysl Flame.
