The Empire of Leoniar is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President LA Rodriguez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 802 million Leonins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rachelle. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Leoniarian economy, worth 94.6 trillion Leonic Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,909 Leonic Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leoniar's national animal is the Capybara, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Leoniar is ranked 176,589th in the world and 6,891st in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,528.99 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
