The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Nogoodnik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.102 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Slobbovian economy, worth 499 trillion Plastic Rasbuckniks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,892 Plastic Rasbuckniks, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, and the statue in the Dubois Plaza has a solar panel for a hat. 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.

Lower Slobbovia is ranked 73,525th in the world and 3rd in The Embassy for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.43 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
