The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alpha Scuti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.497 billion Leonfireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Leonfirean economy, worth 461 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 71,056 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, police detectives carry phrenology calipers as part of their standard kit, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonfire's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Leonfire is ranked 237,364th in the world and 11,782nd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
