The Monopoly Tycoons of Twobagger is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.76 billion Twobaggerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twobagger City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Twobaggerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,776 trillion pansies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 129,080 pansies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twobagger's national animal is the turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Twobagger is ranked 191,379th in the world and 2nd in The Oceania for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
