The Republic of Cublish is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade Commander Spock with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.673 billion Cublishians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordor. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cublishian economy, worth 417 trillion rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 156,332 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, Cublish is renowned for its lax gun laws, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cublish's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Cublish is ranked 25,069th in the world and 1,004th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,045.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
