Population4.207 billion



The Rogue Nation of Lordelles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deriger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.207 billion Lordellesians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thebes. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lordellesian economy, worth 652 trillion potches a year, is quite specialized 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 impressive 155,118 potches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lordelles's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lordelles is ranked 189,757th in the world and 8,278th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.78 Obesity Rate.
