The Federal Republic of Humptalumpta is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Overloard Norm with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.258 billion Humptalumptans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sierra Gordo. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Humptalumptan economy, worth a remarkable 1,147 trillion Wingwangs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,947 Wingwangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Humptalumpta's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The way.

Humptalumpta is ranked 6,328th in the world and 376th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.4 on the Human Development Index.
