The Two Lionquartets of Lion 8 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Lion with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.649 billion Lions are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lioness. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lion 8ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,220 trillion Lions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 77,969 Lions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lion 8's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lionism.

Lion 8 is ranked 35,680th in the world and 15th in Vlaanderen for Most Cultured, scoring 71 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
