The Rogue Nation of Nemesistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Margaret Thatcher with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.038 billion Nemesistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nemesistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,724 trillion quantitatively-eased pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 123,604 quantitatively-eased pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 879,697 per year while the poor average 5,739, a ratio of 153 to 1.

Corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with, membership in Westboro Baptism is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, the barter economy has taken over as the quantitatively-eased pound has become worthless, and retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nemesistan's national animal is the seal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Westboro Baptism.

Nemesistan is ranked 196,697th in the world and 7th in Stanistan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
