The Commonwealth of Kubrikistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Nannietta DeLarge with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.448 billion Kubrikistanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyndon. The average income tax rate is 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. Crime is totally unknown. Kubrikistan's national animal is the lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dhrasz.
