The Empire of Kublam is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 7.129 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 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 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,684 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 236,300 Official Gold Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, billions of Official Gold Ingots are being blown on orbital weapons development, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime 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.

Kublam is ranked 140,231st in the world and 3,932nd in The East Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 1.7 kickbacks per hour.
