The Unified Robotic Cheesemakers of Pightinbotanoffen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by mousels with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.084 billion Pightinbotanoffenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pightinbotanoffenburg. The average income tax rate is 60.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pightinbotanoffenian economy, worth 298 trillion Flokas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 143,182 Flokas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Pightinbotanoffen as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime is totally unknown. Pightinbotanoffen's national animal is the Dormouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Mysticism.

Pightinbotanoffen is ranked 54,867th in the world and 2,478th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.13 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
