The Empire of Kublam is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 2.363 billion Kublamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth 443 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,654 Official Gold Ingots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new hit series "Kublam's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, homophobia is off the menu, organ donation is compulsory, and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kublam's national animal is the Sacred Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Kublam is ranked 7,852nd in the world and 237th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 94.95 Atheism Rate.
