The Rogue Nation of Empire of Lacrimosa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Xaozx with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.854 billion Empire of Lacrimosans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sul Nham. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of Lacrimosan economy, worth a remarkable 5,687 trillion Xians a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 382,919 Xians, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, anyone with a tin cup can stop by the welfare office to have it filled with coins, and environmental legislation occurs cyclically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Lacrimosa's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Imperial Loyalty.

Empire of Lacrimosa is ranked 2,134th in the world and 84th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 11,295.31 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
