The Rogue Nation of LV-Cygnus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Blitzwing with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.556 billion LV-Cygnusians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casino Gigalopolis. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient LV-Cygnusian economy, worth 422 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, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. 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 165,198 8balls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poverty is disloyal to the Motherland, it takes at least three to tango, every citizen sounds like a television news anchor, and the phrase "you might think that but I couldn't possibly comment" is the closest you'll get to a straight answer from LV-Cygnusian politicians. 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 Chaoticism.

LV-Cygnus is ranked 7,281st in the world and 3rd in The Hercules Corona Borealis Great Wall for Most Armed, with 10.36 Weapons Per Person.
