The Aristocratic Regime of Lowell Leber is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Lowellius XVII with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 23.645 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, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 10,547 trillion Centipences a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 446,085 Centipences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,762,388 per year while the poor average 76,443, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day. 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 5,002nd in the world and 5th in New Warsaw Pact for Largest Populations, with 23.6 billion Capita.
