The Principality of Lubnid is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ginslia Alainn with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 6.554 billion Lubnidites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to the Environment, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dilbun. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lubnid's national animal is the pinemartin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Obi Wans, and its currency is the Dub.

Lubnid is ranked 613th in Osiris and 14,462nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 160 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
