The Republic of Shabubu is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 563 million Shabubuans 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 Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blobfishia. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Shabubuan economy, worth 44.3 trillion jabubus a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,713 jabubus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and the new hit series "Shabubu's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shabubu's national animal is the blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Shabubu is ranked 24,837th in the world and 802nd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,225.46 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
