The Ancient City-State of Lyontisia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alulim with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 17.101 billion Lyontisians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumer. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyontisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,338 trillion Crops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 312,184 Crops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The doctor has cold hands, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, arriving late for dinner is considered the height of selfishness, and motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Lyontisia's national animal is the Auroch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Pantheon of the Annunaki.

Lyontisia is ranked 780th in the world and 14th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 79.05 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
