The Aristocratic Regime of Lowell Leber is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Lowellius XVII with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.517 billion Leberites are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Leberdino. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lowell Leberian economy, worth an astonishing 10,537 trillion Centipences a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 448,071 Centipences, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,469,411 per year while the poor average 102,543, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

People caught mistreating Lowell Leber's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lowell Leber's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Pub Life.

Lowell Leber is ranked 243,773rd in the world and 194th in New Warsaw Pact for Most Secular, with 0.83 Atheism Rate.
