The Desolate Wasteland of Kubra is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.628 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 government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ijustwanttousetheforum. The average income tax rate is 30.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kubran economy, worth a remarkable 1,664 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, 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 84,818 neetbuxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unemployed judges can be found squatting in abandoned courthouses, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon". 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 8,023rd in the world and 388th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9,367.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
