The Glen of Poopsancagizal is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ralph Simm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.171 billion Lyburnum are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auquem. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Auquemini economy, worth a remarkable 2,871 trillion Dogecoins 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 235,953 Dogecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, Ralph Simm panders to nontraditional families, and the nation is known as the cheapskates of Capitalist Paradise. Crime is totally unknown. Poopsancagizal's national animal is the Mimic Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Rational Humanism.

Poopsancagizal is ranked 3,581st in the world and 39th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Economic Output, with 2,871 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
