The Allied States of Biggstonia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by BiggieSmalls with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.249 billion Biggstonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Biggstonia City. The average income tax rate is 6.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biggstonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,038 trillion ObeyStars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,136 ObeyStars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Biggstonia's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Biggstonia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Biggstonia is ranked 141,474th in the world and 6,073rd in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.53 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
