The Rogue Nation of Lordelles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deriger with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.486 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 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lordellesian economy, worth 683 trillion potches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 152,424 potches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Lordellesian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, posters on 'Lordellesian Values' advise against being proud of Lordelles, and Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead. 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 208,335th in the world and 9,221st in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
