The Dictatorship of Lonanaby is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bob Mcbobson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.962 billion Lonanabyians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The second Lonanaby city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Lonanabyian economy, worth 312 trillion Habhans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,479 Habhans, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, Bob Mcbobson lights cigars with a hundred-Habhan bill, and every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lonanaby's national animal is the Kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Muslim.

Lonanaby is ranked 42,720th in the world and 1,174th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 25.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
