The Athletic Facilities of Chubrubs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pizz with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.269 billion Chubrubsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pavilion. The average income tax rate is 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Chubrubsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,147 trillion Hours a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,318 Hours, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and in a fit of passion Pizz has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Chubrubs's national animal is the Vedder, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sports.

Chubrubs is ranked 108,001st in the world and 4,849th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
