Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Kubrikistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Nannietta DeLarge with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.359 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyndon. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Kubrikistani economy, worth 429 trillion dhraszzes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,480 dhraszzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and students athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned lynxball fields. Crime is totally unknown. Kubrikistan's national animal is the lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kubrikistan is ranked 246th in Equilism and 143,374th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -45 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
