The People's Directory of Lockengel is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gustaf Engels with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.14 billion Lockengelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Huvudstaden. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lockengelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,090 trillion Lockemarxes 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 Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,321 Lockemarxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, Air Lockengel is rumored to receive more government funding than the Lockengelian Air Force, and cheap goods stamped "Made In Dàguó" are increasingly rare. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lockengel's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lockengel is ranked 202,773rd in the world and 6th in Proxima for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.57 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
