The Armed Republic of Grand Lubeeria is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.787 billion Grand Lubeerians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.4%.
The very strong Grand Lubeerian economy, worth 115 trillion Libeerian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 64,783 Libeerian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 197,300 per year while the poor average 16,509, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
Model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Grand Lubeeria with a very polite populace, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Lubeeria's national animal is the Peregrine falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
