The Federation of Lobek is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eliseo Santayana with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.157 billion Lobekians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clevale. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lobekian economy, worth 210 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 97,497 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, tax rises are attributed to divine will, a video of Eliseo Santayana wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime is totally unknown. Lobek's national animal is the Desert Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lobek is ranked 25,895th in the world and 1,448th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,569.88 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
