The Rogue Nation of Center Lisle is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pops with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5 billion Center Lisleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Center Lislean economy, worth a remarkable 1,115 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,079 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 109,369th in the world and 4,211th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
