The Commonwealth of Kubrikistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Nannietta DeLarge with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.746 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 65%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Major cities are suffering under water rationing, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, and notable individuals are granted land and titles. Crime is totally unknown. Kubrikistan's national animal is the bananallama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dhrasz.
