Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Information Extraction Rooms of The Lubyanka is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.807 billion Lubyankans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Lubyankan economy, worth 310 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,489 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lubyanka's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Lubyanka is ranked 81,777th in the world and 82nd in Kantrias for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 35.32 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
