LeaderAlpha Scuti


The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alpha Scuti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.57 billion Leonfireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Leonfirean economy, worth 236 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 66,165 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, populations of two-headed Lions have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Leonfire" at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonfire's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Leonfire is ranked 181,222nd in the world and 6,586th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
