The Imperium of Leonism is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, humorless population of 7.098 billion Imperials love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leestcheck. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,260 trillion Imperialmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,653 Imperialmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leonism's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, the fattest folk in Leonism look to be the happiest ones, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonism's national animal is the Blaumeise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Leonism is ranked 167,705th in the world and 5,526th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -506.3 on the Hayek Index.
