The Republic of Chubaka is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cuthbert E Tygrys with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.182 billion Chubakans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chuthulan. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chubakan economy, worth 433 trillion bakas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,229 bakas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, third world countries are rich in "I Love Chuthulan" t-shirts, and cigarettes are dead-cheap. Crime is totally unknown. Chubaka's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Chubaka is ranked 19,356th in the world and 569th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,196.91 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
