The Republic of Lobraunia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Atmospheric Noise with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.715 billion Lobraunians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slenbern. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lobraunian economy, worth a remarkable 1,585 trillion Knimnes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an amazing 205,454 Knimnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and the nation tends not to learn from its history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lobraunia's national animal is the Puma, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of RNGesus.

Lobraunia is ranked 167,704th in the world and 4,975th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -15.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
