Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of SchmubberDubber is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marush Ifri with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.904 billion SchmubberDubberians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mira City Of Light City Of Magic. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong SchmubberDubberian economy, worth 256 trillion POUMS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 88,337 POUMS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the nation is known as the cheapskates of The North Pacific, refugees from other nations are flocking to SchmubberDubber's border, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SchmubberDubber's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SchmubberDubber is ranked 142,263rd in the world and 7,114th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
