The Rogue Nation of LV-Cygnus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Blitzwing with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.105 billion LV-Cygnusians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casino Gigalopolis. The average income tax rate is 80.9%.

The all-consuming LV-Cygnusian economy, worth 134 trillion 8balls 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 121,349 8balls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, oracles predict landslide victories for Blitzwing for the next 50 years, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LV-Cygnus's national animal is the Jade-billed Woodpecker, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Chaotcism.

LV-Cygnus is ranked 159,049th in the world and 14th in The Hercules Corona Borealis Great Wall for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
