The United Kingdom of Leontino is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Charles III Scanlan with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.736 billion LeontinÍses live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawthorne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Leontinese economy, worth a remarkable 2,213 trillion Leontinese Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 286,158 Leontinese Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,364,179 per year while the poor average 35,275, a ratio of 38.7 to 1.

Foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Leontinese bee, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Hawthorne, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime is almost non-existent. Leontino's national animal is the Leontinese Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Leontino is ranked 7,313th in the world and 3rd in Novo Brasil for Highest Drug Use, scoring 113.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
