The Rogue Nation of Center Lisle is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Pops with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.321 billion Center Lisleans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vacri. The average income tax rate is 92.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Center Lislean economy, worth a remarkable 1,263 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 237,480 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Center Lisle's beaches, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Center Lisle, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and the moon's craters are more numerous every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Center Lisle's national animal is the Rabid Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Center Lisle is ranked 5,460th in the world and 169th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.64 on the Human Development Index.
