The Aristocratic Regime of Lowell Leber is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Lowellius XVII with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 20.404 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, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 a remarkable 8,601 trillion Centipences a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 421,580 Centipences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,751,783 per year while the poor average 66,418, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

Teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, most Lowell Leberian video games are banned in other countries, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy. 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 550th in the world and 3rd in New Warsaw Pact for Most Cultured, scoring 386 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
