The Empire of Kublam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 2.334 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth 439 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,168 Official Gold Ingots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays. 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 164,935th in the world and 6,208th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.52 Obesity Rate.
