Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population2.855 billion



The Rogue Nation of Lordelles is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Deriger with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.855 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 large, 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 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lordellesian economy, worth 416 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,826 potches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, there is something rotten in the state of Lordelles, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and there's no representation without taxation. 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 126,331st in the world and 6,447th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 37.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
