The Republic of Lowelian is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.255 billion Lowelianians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lowelia. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lowelianian economy, worth 635 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,660 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Lowelianian mussels the biggest in Lazarus, the government is lending a hand to private industry, surveillance cameras are banned, and neighbouring countries pay to situate their nuclear power plants in Lowelian. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lowelian's national animal is the Puppy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lowelian is ranked 129,508th in the world and 2,486th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
