The Kingdom of The Proboscis Tribe is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.254 billion Proboscis Tribeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bantam Village. The average income tax rate is 72.4%.

The strong Proboscis Tribean economy, worth 61.7 trillion Seashells a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,231 Seashells, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Diaper sales are up, the government has the power to seize property at will, drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Proboscis Tribe's national animal is the proboscis monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Proboscis Tribe is ranked 30,608th in the world and 853rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 74 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
