The Rogue Nation of Center Lisle is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Pops with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.256 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Center Lislean economy, worth a remarkable 1,949 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 268,650 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 8,675th in the world and 227th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,554.99 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
