The Dominion of Complete Bastards is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Supreme Bastard with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.581 billion Complete Bastards 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gekkopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Completely Bastardic economy, worth an astonishing 32,392 trillion shticlars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 839,598 shticlars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,380,185 per year while the poor average 53,466, a ratio of 100 to 1.

Red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Complete Bastards has found 5 easter eggs), the government's only official statement on the burning down of Gekkopolis was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Complete Bastards's national animal is the spotted jackal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Basic Fundamentalism.

Complete Bastards is ranked 7,441st in the world and 24th in Wysteria for Most Influential, scoring 7,468 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
