The Desolation of Lockdownn is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lockdown with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.227 billion Lockdownnians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorguschmich. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lockdownnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,893 trillion Lockes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 261,955 Lockes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,301,347 per year while the poor average 29,830, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lockdownn's national animal is the Boa Constrictor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Carbanism.

Lockdownn is ranked 7,981st in the world and 1st in Global Federation for Most Influential, scoring 3,774 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
