The Imperium of Leonism is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.891 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 4,144 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 298,373 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 485th in the world and 16th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 290.48 quips per hour.
