The Kingdom of Nublar Paradox is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 354 million Nublar Paradoxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Bat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Nublar Paradoxian economy, worth 36.7 trillion Owls a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,787 Owls, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, the government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system, and huge explosions in the sky are a daily occurrence in the cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nublar Paradox's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Nublar Paradox is ranked 101,704th in the world and 1,139th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,605.03 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
