The Armed Republic of HuBloX is a massive, safe nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.53 billion HuBloXians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HuBloxan. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped HuBloXian economy, worth 52.6 trillion aranies 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. 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 34,384 aranies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, edutainment video games are taking HuBloX's students to the next level, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HuBloX's national animal is the wild boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

HuBloX is ranked 61,368th in the world and 70th in Force for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
