The Rogue Nation of Explodicon is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Commander Creepzta with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.255 billion Explodiconians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Explodiconian economy, worth 897 trillion etherians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 211,027 etherians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Explodiconian flag, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Explodicon, children playing with walkie-talkies are told to 'get a job', and Explodiconian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Explodicon's national animal is the binturong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Obsidian Scale.

Explodicon is ranked 226,377th in the world and 88th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Politically Free, scoring 6.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
