The Federation of Lioniel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Alfonzo D Ferguson with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.971 billion Lionielians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalania. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lionielia economy, worth a remarkable 1,705 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 155,487 Patronuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Lioniel is often a lifetime appointment, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 1,332nd in the world and 28th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 30,142.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
