The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 7.94 billion 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. The average income tax rate is 10%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Soda Sales.
Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. 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.
