The Principality of Nothanksbutseriously is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Fearless Bob with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.39 billion Nothanksbutseriouslyians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Power to the Peopleville. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nothanksbutseriouslyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,521 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 181,349 bedazzled farfets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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 3,061st in the world and 95th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 159,395.17 Standard Monetary Units.
