The Dictatorship of Vlobbania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vlobby with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.586 billion Vlobbanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.7%.

The all-consuming Vlobbanian economy, worth 300 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 116,085 Charred corpses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 490,493 per year while the poor average 17,775, a ratio of 27.6 to 1.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, and virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Vlobal. 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 23,786th in the world and 495th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 116,085.82 Standard Monetary Units.
