The Desolation of Lockdownn is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lockdown with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.304 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, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 1,651 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 1,230th in the world and 4th in Global Federation for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 57,336.03 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
