The Gaelic Republic of Dubn is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.939 billion Dubners love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Dubnian economy, worth 257 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,553 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, voting is voluntary, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dubn's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dubn is ranked 108,331st in the world and 89th in Canada for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,049.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
