The Obesotocracy of Treadwellia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tubbius with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.713 billion Tubbians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piggy Cliff. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tubbian economy, worth an astonishing 12,369 trillion Gold Tummies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 544,620 Gold Tummies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,503,373 per year while the poor average 34,320, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, refugee camp conversions to Tubbianism are increasingly common, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Treadwellia's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tubbianism.

Treadwellia is ranked 258,396th in the world and 7,075th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.55 percentage of bribes refused.
