Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Commonwealth of Kubrikistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Nannietta DeLarge with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.714 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 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Kubrikistani economy, worth 405 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 41,762 dhraszzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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.
