The Information Extraction Rooms of The Lubyanka is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.739 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Voting is voluntary. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Lubyanka's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Ruble.

The Lubyanka is ranked 40th in Kantrias and 38,116th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 31 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
