Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population5.657 billion



The Rogue Nation of Lordelles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Deriger with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.657 billion Lordellesians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thebes. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lordellesian economy, worth 824 trillion potches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,748 potches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Thebes" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lordelles's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lordelles is ranked 10,289th in the world and 536th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 94.21 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
