The Rogue Nation of Explodicon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Commander Creepzta with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.869 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, socially-minded, 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 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Explodiconian economy, worth 553 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 impressive 192,916 etherians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, babysitters are a thing of the past, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and Explodiconians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police. 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 4,101st in the world and 1st in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Developed, scoring 94.69 on the Human Development Index.
