The Grand Tea Party of Lordeh is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Clyde Frog with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.563 billion Buddies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buddy economy, worth a remarkable 2,637 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 307,985 Snacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, lobster tastes best when it is red, and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. 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 23,279th in the world and 236th in the Pacific for Most Average, scoring 50.11 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
