The Dictatorship of Vlobbania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vlobby with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.597 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, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlobal. The average income tax rate is 27.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vlobbanian economy, worth 522 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 extensive. Average income is an impressive 113,728 Charred corpses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the Great Vlobbanian Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine Vlobby is punishable by death, and vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres. 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 29,145th in the world and 449th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,283.57 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
