The Legend of Lower Phlebacite is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.042 billion Lower Phlebaciteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirius EndJinn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Phlebacitean economy, worth a remarkable 3,198 trillion Marvins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 353,789 Marvins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,263,443 per year while the poor average 71,188, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, and the Sirius EndJinn Pride Parade's head banner explains how unionizing is heteronormative. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Lower Phlebacite's national animal is the Long Horned Gnubradoodle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lower Phlebacite is ranked 5,832nd in the world and 98th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,984.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
