The Federation of Loben is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 402 million Lobenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.2%.

The strong Lobenian economy, worth 21.5 trillion Delkins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 53,536 Delkins, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Loben's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Loben is ranked 79,786th in the world and 3,471st in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,888.97 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
