The Prison State of Lothundy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Central Planning Unit Y-17a with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.188 billion Lothundics are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prilyr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Lothundyian economy, worth 192 trillion markcoins 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 161,822 markcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Lothundyian bee, and scientists spend more time enduring government inspections than they do on actual science. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lothundy's national animal is the shrike, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lothundy is ranked 58,043rd in the world and 1,245th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
