The Flying Flemish Flag of The Lion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gwyde with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.067 billion Lionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lioness. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lionian economy, worth a remarkable 2,287 trillion Gilders a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 113,998 Gilders, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, abacus sales outpace those of the personal computer following the closure of the Internet, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lion's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Lion is ranked 86,639th in the world and 21st in Vlaanderen for Most Avoided, scoring 2.76 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
