The Empire of Kublam is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.22 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhazk. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kublamian economy, worth 640 trillion Official Gold Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,761 Official Gold Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. 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 8,100th in the world and 206th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,335.78 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
