The Dictatorship of Vlobbania is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Vlobby with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.916 billion Vlobbanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlobal. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vlobbanian economy, worth 870 trillion Charred corpses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 125,939 Charred corpses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, men's magazines give handy tips on the most effective way to throw heavy stones, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vlobbania's national animal is the Meed, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Neefex.

Vlobbania is ranked 7,268th in the world and 93rd in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 35,417.91 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
