The Empire of Kublam is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.783 billion Kublamians 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth 912 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,883 Official Gold Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Kublamian citizenship in droves, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kublam's national animal is the Sacred Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Kublam is ranked 159,831st in the world and 7,374th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.86 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
