The Principality of Lubnid is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ginslia Alainn with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.702 billion Lubnidites are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 93%, 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.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, laws are littered with references to cheese, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime -- especially youth-related -- 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 3,225th in Osiris and 117,971st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
