The Principality of Nothanksbutseriously is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Fearless Bob with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 6.35 billion Nothanksbutseriouslyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Power to the Peopleville. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nothanksbutseriouslyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 trillion bedazzled farfets 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,516 bedazzled farfets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, all beauty contests have been banned, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nothanksbutseriously's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Who cares.

Nothanksbutseriously is ranked 42,335th in the world and 1,696th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
