The Federal Republic of Drunken Seal Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by jizzmaster zero with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 10.791 billion Sealsmen are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Drunken Seal Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,447 trillion Krangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 134,175 Krangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, and future leaders of Drunken Seal Islands regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Drunken Seal Islands's national animal is the Drop Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Boganism.

Drunken Seal Islands is ranked 199,853rd in the world and 8,687th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.81 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
