The Free Land of Lower Phlebacite is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.268 billion Lower Phlebaciteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius EndJinn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Phlebacitean economy, worth a remarkable 2,402 trillion Marvins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 330,600 Marvins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, teenagers are severely punished for being out too late, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lower Phlebacite's national animal is the Long Horned Gnubradoodle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Phlebacite is ranked 20,789th in the world and 360th in 10000 Islands for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,178.23 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
