Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Intolerancy of Losfebev is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Patriarch with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.411 billion irrelevances 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Losfebev City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The large but stagnant Losfebevian economy, worth 350 trillion nonthings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 14,344 nonthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, Patriarch tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", people have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, and science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Losfebev's national animal is the nonthing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Patriarchy.

Losfebev is ranked 150,940th in the world and 5th in Oubliette for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.49 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
