The Rogue Nation of Explodicon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commander Creepzta with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.037 billion Explodiconians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Explodiconian economy, worth 594 trillion etherians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 195,599 etherians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, doctors will keep brain-dead coma patients ventilated for years in order to avoid accusations of allowing people to die, and the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Explodicon's national animal is the binturong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Obsidian Scale.

Explodicon is ranked 188,647th in the world and 109th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
