The Desolate Wasteland of Kubra is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.738 billion Kubrans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ijustwanttousetheforum. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kubran economy, worth a remarkable 1,396 trillion neetbuxes 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 83,412 neetbuxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, innocent people are routinely stoned to death by frenzied lynch mobs, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kubra's national animal is the thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is whydidthishappen.

Kubra is ranked 163,605th in the world and 5,291st in Osiris for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -8.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
