The Aristocratic Regime of Lowell Leber is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Lowellius XVII with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.823 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 Law & Order are also considered important, 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 8,233 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 415,350 Centipences, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,439,738 per year while the poor average 87,478, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

Tourists flock from around the world to see Lowell Leber's famed 'rainbow slums', the clergy of The Pub Life remains a single-sex institution, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. 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 6,643rd in the world and 15th in New Warsaw Pact for Largest Black Market, with 68.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
