The Ancient City-State of Lyontisia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alulim with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 23.66 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lyontisian economy, worth a remarkable 7,269 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 307,238 Crops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. 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 40,530th in the world and 2,032nd in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 65.31 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
