The Dominion of Sierra Lobo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Grace Gerald de Valien III with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, soft-spoken computers, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.06 billion Sierra Loboans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 4,095 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 313,606 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, every workday begins with group therapy, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament. 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.
