The Phonencian Colony of Lolder is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by its Colonial Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.74 billion Lolderians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oasis. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lolderian economy, worth a remarkable 2,561 trillion Loldollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,754 Loldollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, the LBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the government spends billions to protect Lolder from a disaster that is one in a million, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lolder's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Theory of Evolution.

Lolder is ranked 51,403rd in the world and 17th in International Northwestern Union for Most Patriotic, with 19.11 flags saluted per person per day.
