The Parfoederation of Isle of Lost is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.385 billion Merickians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palmaurbis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mericki economy, worth a remarkable 1,836 trillion Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 127,650 Shells, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 582,923 per year while the poor average 17,041, a ratio of 34.2 to 1.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, and billions of Shells are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Isle of Lost's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Isle of Lost is ranked 8,332nd in the world and 2nd in Alliance of Revolutionary Conglomerates for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 10,146.29 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
