The Imperium of Leonism is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator Konsul Leo I with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.771 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leestcheck. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 2,583 trillion Imperialmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 264,395 Imperialmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Leonism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonism's national animal is the Blaumeise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Leonism is ranked 203,151st in the world and 7,529th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 23.15 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
