The Grand Tea Party of Lordeh is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Clyde Frog with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.834 billion Buddies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shi Tpa Town. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buddy economy, worth a remarkable 3,039 trillion Snacks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, 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 309,099 Snacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Clyde Frog's rear echelons, and rural Buddies stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities. Crime is totally unknown. Lordeh's national animal is the Clyde Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scientology.

Lordeh is ranked 5,114th in the world and 118th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,987.43 Tourists Per Hour.
