LeaderAlpha Scuti


The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alpha Scuti with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.225 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 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Leonfirean economy, worth 281 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 66,743 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, populations of two-headed Lions have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Leonfire" at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 208,760th in the world and 7,261st in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
