The Dictatorship of Vlobbania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vlobby with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, flagrant waste-dumping, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.177 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlobal. The average income tax rate is 23.2%.

The all-consuming Vlobbanian economy, worth 351 trillion Charred corpses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,532 Charred corpses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, economists claim no news is good news, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. 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 213,002nd in the world and 5,759th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 71.79 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
