The Federation of Lioniel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alfonzo D Ferguson with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 13.174 billion Lionielians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalania. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lionielia economy, worth a remarkable 2,164 trillion Patronuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,269 Patronuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, and politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lioniel's national animal is the Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lioniel is ranked 211,910th in the world and 7,953rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -99.56 on the Hayek Index.
