The Bundes'ka of Cumberlanda is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Board of Governors with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.337 billion Cumberlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pike City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cumberlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,006 trillion Arias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 194,126 Arias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, high school bands practice by moonlight, and one of the most popular models in Cumberlanda has a scarred face and one working eye. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cumberlanda's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cumberlanda is ranked 93,042nd in the world and 89th in Union of Free Nations for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
