The Athletic Facilities of Chubrubs is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pizz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.534 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, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pavilion. The average income tax rate is 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Chubrubsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,960 trillion Hours a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 144,179 Hours, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 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 major 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 150,418th in the world and 6,154th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -15.81 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
