Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Information Extraction Rooms of The Lubyanka is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.273 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 Environment. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Lubyankan economy, worth 301 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 117,756th in the world and 140th in Kantrias for Most Avoided, scoring 1.55 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
