The Empire of Lotusb is a large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 56 million Lotusbians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 10.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Lotusbian economy, worth 2.79 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 49,759 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, Harry Potter books are banned, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Lotusbians any less frightened. Crime is well under control. Lotusb's national animal is the cheetah, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Lotusb is ranked 67,043rd in the world and 19th in Nostromo for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
