The Rogue Nation of Lancelia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand High Admiral Lance with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, aversion to nipples, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.707 billion Lancelians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lance City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lancelian economy, worth an astonishing 15,162 trillion lancian dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 732,250 lancian dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,859,112 per year while the poor average 6,581, a ratio of 1,042 to 1.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, international trade can be a pain to deal with, and scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lancelia's national animal is the tiger shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Way of Lance.

Lancelia is ranked 179,176th in the world and 2nd in The Corporations of the World for Most Politically Free, scoring 15.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
