The People's Republic of SchmubberDubber is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Marush Ifri with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.737 billion SchmubberDubberians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. 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 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving SchmubberDubberian economy, worth 584 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,807 POUMS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, surveillance cameras are banned, some SchmubberDubberian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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 154,685th in the world and 5,478th in Balder for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.67 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
