The Office Cowboy of Funkadelia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Funkenstein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.327 billion Funkadelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funky Nassau. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Funkadelic economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion Grooves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 77,720 Grooves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Dr Funkenstein, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Funkadelia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, many friends and relatives of Dr Funkenstein have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime is totally unknown. Funkadelia's national animal is the Atomic Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Funkadelia is ranked 18,634th in the world and 456th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 79.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
