The Rogue Nation of Center Lisle is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Pops with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.662 billion Center Lisleans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vacri. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Center Lislean economy, worth a remarkable 2,341 trillion florins 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 270,349 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Pops's rear echelons, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Center Lisle's national animal is the Rabid Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Center Lisle is ranked 105,634th in the world and 3,836th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
