The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Nogoodnik with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 750 million Lower Slobbovians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slivovitz. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lower Slobbovian economy, worth 63.9 trillion Plastic Rasbuckniks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 85,187 Plastic Rasbuckniks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and King Nogoodnik has just been declared ruler of Lower Slobbovia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Slobbovia's national animal is the Russian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Slobbovia is ranked 135,655th in the world and 7th in The Embassy for Highest Economic Output, with 63.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
