The Imperium of Leonism is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.544 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leestcheck. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 2,045 trillion Imperialmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,401 Imperialmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the imperial language, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and replacement organs are grown in vats. 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 100,722nd in the world and 4,547th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 121 billion Standard Monetary Units.
