The United Socialist States of Leonfire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alpha Scuti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.93 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 enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantherax. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Leonfirean economy, worth 126 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 65,664 Bitts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and the news is showing footage of Alpha Scuti bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Atheism.

Leonfire is ranked 177,546th in the world and 8,466th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
