The Oppressed Peoples of Lower Slobbovia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 744 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slivovitz. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lower Slobbovian economy, worth 63.7 trillion Plastic Rasbuckniks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 85,675 Plastic Rasbuckniks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. 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 215,826th in the world and 12th in The Embassy for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.07 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
