The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade Nogoodnik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.418 billion Lower Slobbovians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slivovitz. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Slobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,149 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 212,194 Plastic Rasbuckniks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, bike rage is all the rage, holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year, and government negotiators never forget to say "pretty please" when begging for custody of its criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is Equity Amongst the Masses.

Lower Slobbovia is ranked 15,755th in the world and 2nd in The Embassy for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,873.84 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
