The Rogue Nation of Explodicon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Commander Creepzta with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.242 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Explodiconian economy, worth 171 trillion etherians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 138,169 etherians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the news is showing footage of Commander Creepzta bullying an old man to the point of tears, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Necropolis to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 162,027th in the world and 109th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 9.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
