The Rogue Nation of Center Lisle is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Pops with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.69 billion Center Lisleans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vacri. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Center Lislean economy, worth a remarkable 2,031 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 264,144 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pops is considering changing the Center Lislean flag to one with more glitter, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, and the stock market has been destroyed for its own protection. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Center Lisle's national animal is the Rabid Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Center Lisle is ranked 7,718th in the world and 289th in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 96.44 Atheism Rate.
