The Peaceful Free Republic of Tubularia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Benevolent God-Emperor for Eternity Oki with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, vat-grown people, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.567 billion little playthings are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ephebe. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tubularian economy, worth a remarkable 6,572 trillion tusks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 484,438 tusks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

There is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Tubularian military, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, builders across Tubularia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tubularia's national animal is the elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sekkism.

Tubularia is ranked 1,219th in the world and 1st in Deliciousness for Highest Economic Output, with 6,572 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
