The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 362 million 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Leonfirean economy, worth 20.7 trillion Bitts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 57,165 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Pantherax to enjoy their national art, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leonfire's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Leonfire is ranked 135,106th in the world and 6,953rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
