The Free Land of Lobstone is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.134 billion Lobstoneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rock Lobster. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Lobstonean economy, worth 69.1 trillion Paus a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,947 Paus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Rock Lobster make great practice for foreign snipers, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lobstone's national animal is the Lobster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Lobstone is ranked 169,224th in the world and 119th in Portugal for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.22 Crimes Per Hour.
