The Sunny Balkans of Kubrath is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Seth Dawnstrider with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.198 billion Kubrathians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sofia. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kubrathian economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,312 Polar Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Kubrath will pay them to stop, fruit pickers with degrees in Frostbite Dove psychology are a common sight, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kubrath's national animal is the Frostbite Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kubrath is ranked 7,164th in the world and 6th in Arctic for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.27 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
