The Sinister Sadistic Satrapy of Lorx is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cair Enladen with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 17.806 billion Kleshites are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamorra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kleshite economy, worth a remarkable 8,020 trillion Corics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 450,428 Corics, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,198,904 per year while the poor average 21,064, a ratio of 151 to 1.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, and heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lorx's national animal is the Desert Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Diode.

Lorx is ranked 233rd in the world and 9th in Eladen for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 28,039.88 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
