The Empire of Lonbonia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Trius with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 9.364 billion Lons 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kunera. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lonbonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,121 trillion Black Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,805 Black Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, trained plumber-burglars will clean out your blocked pipes and your jewellery boxes, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lonbonia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lonbonia is ranked 87,819th in the world and 1,729th in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 88 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
