The People´s Republic of Incredible Bums is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Serving Mastermind with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.598 billion Idiots love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Scam. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The all-consuming foolish economy, worth a remarkable 3,374 trillion IQS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 163,820 IQS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and immigrants who don't like the taste of foolish Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Incredible Bums's national animal is the Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is none.

Incredible Bums is ranked 9,005th in the world and 4th in Greifenreservat for Most Secular, with 95.09 Atheism Rate.
