The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.229 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 36%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.
Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime is totally unknown, 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.
