Crusade of Lions

Population340 million


CurrencyThrone Gelt

The Armed Republic of Crusade of Lions is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 340 million Crusade of Lionsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Russia. The average income tax rate is 45.2%.

The very strong Crusade of Lionsian economy, worth 27.4 trillion Throne Gelts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 80,681 Throne Gelts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

All artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, arbitration is mightier than the sword, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and the only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crusade of Lions's national animal is the Lions, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Crusade of Lions is ranked 66,128th in the world and 1,258th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,817.78 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
