The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Nogoodnik with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 865 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.5%.

The strong Lower Slobbovian economy, worth 77.1 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 89,186 Plastic Rasbuckniks, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 203,790th in the world and 15th in The Embassy for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
