The Empire of Kublam is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its national health service, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.965 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,240 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 207,984 Official Gold Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and where there's smoke there's the Kublamian Forestry Department. Crime 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 14,077th in the world and 215th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,240 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
