The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by King Nogoodnik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 894 million Lower Slobbovians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slivovitz. The average income tax rate is 85.4%.

The strong Lower Slobbovian economy, worth 84.6 trillion Plastic Rasbuckniks 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Tourism. 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 94,622 Plastic Rasbuckniks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, the government funds large training centres to turn Russian Bears into functioning members of society, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, and it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Slobbovia's national animal is the Russian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Slobbovia is ranked 8,299th in the world and 1st in The Embassy for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,264.95 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
