The Mind Empire of Lotrabme is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Sage Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.688 billion Mind Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Hill. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lotrabmean economy, worth a remarkable 3,767 trillion Silver Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,075 Silver Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", The Sage Council often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lotrabme's national animal is the elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Quasi-Faith.

Lotrabme is ranked 8,014th in the world and 9th in The Local Cluster for Most Developed, scoring 91.52 on the Human Development Index.
