LeaderAlpha Scuti


The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alpha Scuti with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.533 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 enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Leonfirean economy, worth 164 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Uranium Mining. Average income is 64,788 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame. Crime 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 209,124th in the world and 9,113th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -77.12 on the Hayek Index.
