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 pith helmet sales, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.856 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, 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 95.6%.

The large but stagnant Losfebevian economy, worth 325 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. 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 13,663 nonthings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, and shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Losfebev's national animal is the nonthing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Patriarchy.

Losfebev is ranked 178,431st in the world and 6th in Oubliette for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -61.79 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
