|As utterly wretched as existence
was in Dogpatch,
there was one place even worse: faraway LOWER SLOBBOVIA.
The hapless residents of frigid Lower Slobbovia were perpetually
covered with several feet of snow. Icicles hung from almost every
nose. Polar bears and wolves stalked the homeless, which meant
nearly everyone. There was no visible civilization, no money,
no hope. The Slobbovian politicians were even more corrupt than
their Dogpatch counterparts. Conditions couldn't be worse. Lower
Slobbovians spoke with Russian accents and astute readers knew
that Capp's fictional hellhole was a thinly disguised Siberia.
