The Arab Republic of Dubokia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Raihaan Al-Dib with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.914 billion Dubokians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madinat Alghaba. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dubokian economy, worth 634 trillion Luks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 217,613 Luks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dubokia's national animal is the Saker Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Usnistani Islam.

Dubokia is ranked 7,516th in the world and 223rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 89.23 on the Human Development Index.
