The United Empires of America is one of the poorest nations on MOCPAGES. The country can be classified as a THIRD WORLD NATION. The capital city (the one in the pictures) is called LUBBYVE. I remade this nation to look identical to when I originally made it back in 1994. The United Empires of America nowadays 'shares a border' with my new modern Lego nation the Democratic Republic of Lego (You can also see it here in MOCPAGES).The picture above shows the highway 133 leading to Lubbyve. The sign is made of a Lego torso!! The sign is the real one I made in 1994 , when I made this nation the first time. The idea when I did this city was to portray a very poor Lego nation. The nation was made of only my worst or broken or discolored Lego pieces. The inspiration for making this nation in 1994 were dusty mexican border towns.----------------------------------------------------- SPANISH: IMPERIOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA ES UN PAIS DE LEGOS CLASIFICADO COMO TERCERMUNDISTA. LA NACION SUFRE DE TODA CLASE DE CARENCIAS IMAGINABLES, Y ES UNA DE LAS NACIONES MAS POBRES DE MOCPAGES. SU CAPITAL ES 'LUBBYVE' Y EL PAIS TIENE DE VECINO A MI OTRA NUEVA NACION DE LEGOS MODERNA, LA REPUBLICA DEMOCRATICA DE LEGO (PUEDEN VERLA AQUI EN MOC PAGES). EN LA FOTO DE ARRIBA SE APRECIA UN SENALAMIENTO MUY RUDIMENTARIO CON EL NUMERO DE LA AUTOPISTA 133 QUE CONDUCE A LUBBYVE DESDE LA FRONTERA CON LA REPUBLICA DEMOCRATICA DE LEGO. EL ANUNCIO FUE HECHO EN VERDAD EN 1994 CUANDO HIZE ESTA NACION POR PRIMERA VEZ. LA NACION ESTA INSPIRADA EN LAS POBRES CIUDADES FRONTERIZAS MEXICANAS. HOY EN DIA ARME DE VUELTA LA NACION QUE SIGE SIENDO TAN POBRE COMO ANTES.
About this creation

The capital of the United Empires of America, Lubbyve. Population is just 10 minifigures. I left it the same as in 1994.

SPANISH: CAPITAL DE LOS IMPERIOS UNIDOS DE AMERICA, LUBBYVE.



There are almost no cars in the nation,even though there is a highway. Here you see minifigures walking from out of the city!!

SPANISH: POR LA POBREZA QUE SUFRE EL PAIS,CASI NO HAY AUTOS EN EL PAIS, LA GENTE TIENE QUE INCLUSO CAMINAR DE UN PUEBLO A OTRO SOBRE LA AUTOPISTA.



Poor lubbyvian minifigures walking in Lubbyve. The lubbyvians have either very worn clothes, or lego clothes that are way out of fashion, such as this yellow smile shirts I originally did in 1994. Believe it or not the yellow shirt the minifigure has was originally a vintage 1988 astronaut shirt, but it faded completely so I painted the yellow smile design on the shirt in 1994!! I know is rare to see this, but Lego poverty does exist !!

SPANISH: LA GENTE DE LUBBYVE VIVE BAJO CONDICIONES DE EXTREMA POBREZA. LA ROPA QUE TIENEN ESTA MUY VIEJA O MUY FUERA DE MODA, COMO LA CAMISA Y LA FALDA DE CARITAS FELICES QUE TIENEN LA GENTE DE ATRAS. YO LAS DIBUJE EN 1994. PERO ESTAMOS EN 2011 YA ESTAN PASADAS DE MODA!!



Look at the doors of the houses and the doors have holes in the bottom, the people are dirt poor here. They just can't afford proper official Lego doors or windows for their houses. Even lego truck rear windows make an excellent house window in Lubbyve. Street maintenance here is very bad, and there are potholes.

SPANISH: MIREN LAS CASAS, PARECEN MAS BIEN CASI FAVELAS O CHOZAS. NO HAY DINERO PARA PUERTAS O VENTANAS AUTENTICAS DE LEGO. MIREN LA IMPROVISADA CASA DE LEGOS CON AGUJERO EN LA PUERTA. EN LUBBYVE NO SE DESPERDICIA NADA, SINO MIREN LA VENTANA IMPROVISADA DE UNA VENTANA DE UN AUTO DE LEGOS. EL MANTENIMIENTO DE LAS CALLES ES CASI INEXISTENTE EN LUBBYVE Y HAY BACHES GRANDES EN LAS CALLES.



Flag of the nation. Not the original one from 1994, but I made to look just like it.

SPANISH: LA BANDERA DE LA NACION.



Hospital in Downtown Lubbyve. The hospital has no equipment whatsoever to treat patients. Most minifigure patients here die !!

SPANISH: HOSPITAL EN EL CENTRO DE LUBBYVE NO CUENTA CON LOS RECURSOS NECESARIOS PARA ATENDER A LOS PACIENTES, QUIENES LA GRAN MAYORIA DESGRACIADAMENTE MUEREN AL SER INGRESADOS.



Government building in Downtown Lubbyve. The building is a excellent example of the way I used to do lego buildings back in the days when I actually did not have many lego glass windows.

SPANISH: EDIFICIO DE GOBIERNO EN EL CENTRO DE LUBBYVE. ESTE ES UN BUEN EJEMPLO DE COMO YO HACIA EDIFICIOS DE LEGOS CON MUY POCAS PIEZAS ANTES.



Nicer house and a minifigure car. This is a luxury for corrupt government officials.
Notice that the minifigures have worn out or faded clothes. The standard of living is extremely low, the poverty is just heartbreaking.

SPANISH: UNA CASA UN POQUITO MEJOR Y HASTA CON COCHE! , SEGURAMENTE PROPIEDAD DE UN FUNCIONARIO CORRUPTO. NOTEN LA CAMISA MUY VIEJA Y DESGASTADA DEL CHAVO. LA GENTE ES REALMENTE POBLE AQUI.



Lubbyve homes are more like shacks. Nothing is thrown away in Lubbyve. An airplane window can be used for a house window. Also the walls of the houses can be made of broken lego baseplates to substitute lego bricks. IN THIS POOR LEGO NATION YOU MAKE IT WITH OR MAKE WITHOUT IT !

SPANISH: NADA SE DESPERDICIA EN LUBBYVE. LAS CASAS SE HACEN CON LO QUE SE ENCUENTRE. (jaja)



Broken lego street signs are never thrown away in Lubbyve. The lego street signs are repaired with clear scotch tape and put back !!

SPANISH: SENALAMIENTOS DE LEGO ROTOS NO SE TIRAN A LA BASURA EN LUBBYVE. SE REPARAN CON CINTA ADHESIVA Y SE VUELVEN A USAR !!



Another example of Lubbyvian ingenuity: A clever use for a broken lego street sign. The broken Lego street sign was put on top of the traffic light. There are no green,red, and yellow glass for traffic lights here either. They had to use red, blue, and yellow bricks instead as a substitute.


SPANISH: OTRO EJEMPLO DE LA INGENUIDAD DE LA GENTE DE LUBBYVE. UN SENALAMIENTO DE LEGO ROTO SE PUSO ARRIBA DEL SEMAFORO Y SE PEGO CON CINTA ADHESIVA. EN LUBBYVE NO HAY DINERO PARA PONER SEMAFOROS DE LEGO ADECUADOS, SINO QUE IMPROVISARON UNOS SEMAFOROS CON BLOQUES AZUL, ROJO, Y VERDE. ESTE PAIS DE LEGO ES REALMENTE MUY POBRE.



Another real sign from 1994! The sign apparently mentions two more cities CLOSE TO LUBBYVE, VERALDA and FERREIRA. The names of the cities sound like Colombian or south american towns! Nothing to do with Lubbyve!

OTRO ANUNCIO MUY VIEJO HECHO POR MI EN 1994. MENCIONA DOS PUEBLOS CERCANOS A LUBBYVE, EL PUEBLO DE VERALDA Y EL DE FERREIRA. SUENAN COMO NOMBRES DE PUEBLOS COLOMBIANOS O SUDAMERICANOS!
NADA QUE VER CON LUBBYVE !



A closer look at the sign. I found this sign after I had already posted this MOC! So I was very glad when I found this sign because it proves to me that back in 1994 when I had originally made this nation, it was supposed to be a nation with more than one city. Just like you can see in my other Lego Nation MOC (democratic republic of Lego also has more than one city). The towns of VERALDA and FERREIRA were actually never built in 1994.

EL ANUNCIO MAS DE CERCAS. EL ANUNCIO LO ENCONTRE HASTA DESPUES DE HABER PUESTO ESTE MOC! PERO EL ANUNCIO ES MUY IMPORTANTE PARA MI, PORQUE PRUEBA QUE CUANDO HICE ESTA NACION EN 1994, ERA REALMENTE UNA NACION DE LEGOS, PORQUE CONTABA CON MAS DE UNA CIUDAD. CABE MENCIONAR QUE LOS PUEBLOS DE VERALDA Y FERREIRA NUNCA FUERON CONSTRUIDOS EN 1994.
