The Socialist Republic of Kilobugya is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Comrade with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.631 billion Kilobugyans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fraternia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kilobugyan economy, worth an astonishing 13,816 trillion Columbuses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 357,646 Columbuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and happiness is all being miserable together. Crime is totally unknown. Kilobugya's national animal is the Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kilobugya is ranked 50th in the world and 1st in Democratic Communist States for Most Cultured, scoring 902 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
