LeaderImperator Konsul Leo I


The Imperium of Leonism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.922 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leestcheck. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 4,154 trillion Imperialmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 298,425 Imperialmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Belief that Imperator Konsul Leo I is a lizard-person from outer space has reached an all-time high, most citizens in Leonism are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, and conspiracy theorists allege Leestcheck's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 257,725th in the world and 7,056th in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -33.75 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
