The Fore-Shortened Corn Flakes of Bongo Fury is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sam with the Showing Scalp Flat Top with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.303 billion Bongo Furyians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utility Muffin Research Kitchen. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bongo Furyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,880 trillion muffins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 298,292 muffins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, citizens sport solarium-kissed tans that are perfectly even except for the occasional melanoma, the fattest folk in Bongo Fury look to be the happiest ones, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bongo Fury's national animal is the wooden dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bongo Fury is ranked 238,024th in the world and 539th in NationStates for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -16.12 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
