The Rogue Nation of Lordelles is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Deriger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.62 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 enormous, 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 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lordellesian economy, worth 818 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 145,729 potches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Thebes" t-shirts. 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 140,473rd in the world and 4,810th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.3 Weapons Per Person.
