The Grand Tea Party of Lordeh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Clyde Frog with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.241 billion Buddies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shi Tpa Town. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buddy economy, worth a remarkable 3,192 trillion Snacks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 311,699 Snacks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and all the playground's a stage for Buddy schoolchildren. Crime is totally unknown. Lordeh's national animal is the Clyde Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scientology.

Lordeh is ranked 31,030th in the world and 184th in the Pacific for Largest Populations, with 10.2 billion Capita.
