The Republic of Lowelian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.957 billion Lowelianians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lowelian Mega-City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Lowelianian economy, worth 196 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,191 Bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 399,768 per year while the poor average 16,892, a ratio of 23.7 to 1.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, babies are a small but significant export, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lowelian's national animal is the Puppy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lowelian is ranked 30,580th in the world and 1,407th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.02 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
