The Federation of Lioniel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alfonzo D Ferguson with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.949 billion Lionielians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalania. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lionielia economy, worth a remarkable 1,700 trillion Patronuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,344 Patronuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, government employees from Lioniel dominate international lumberjack competitions, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lioniel's national animal is the Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lioniel is ranked 2,648th in the world and 82nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.75 on the Human Development Index.
