The United Nations of New Giggles Town is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rawb with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.157 billion New Giggles Townians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Final Talon. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Giggles Townian economy, worth 411 trillion Gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,895 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, New Giggles Townian actors literally work from cradle to grave, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Giggles Town's national animal is the Kolbold, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

New Giggles Town is ranked 32,756th in the world and 422nd in Balder for Most Stationary, with 394.2313101918 Days.
