The Information Extraction Rooms of The Lubyanka is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 13.537 billion The Lubyankans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant The Lubyankan economy, worth 223 trillion Rubles 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 16,483 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lubyanka's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Lubyanka is ranked 84th in Kantrias and 86,595th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
