The Empire of Kublam is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 4.83 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth 923 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,273 Official Gold Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. 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 139,161st in the world and 5,391st in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.56 on the Rand Index.
