The United Kingdom of Luposberg is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 831 million Lupi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vibe Shack. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Luposian economy, worth 38.9 trillion Rubber Duckies 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 46,831 Rubber Duckies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luposberg's national animal is the Mantis Shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luposberg is ranked 204,579th in the world and 130th in The Hole To Hide In for Rudest Citizens, with 25.33 Insults Per Minute.
