The Rogue Nation of Neo Los Angeles is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 281 million Angelenos enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration and Defense are also considered important, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prosperity District. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.5%.

The all-consuming Angeleno economy, worth 34.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 121,780 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,521 per year while the poor average 10,602, a ratio of 64.8 to 1.

Exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Neo Los Angeles's national animal is the grizzly bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Neo Los Angeles is ranked 54,199th in the world and 982nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
