The Confederacy of Yummy Blubber is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Ditherest of all Dathers with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, lack of airports, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.895 billion Funguses 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Chungus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Yummy Blubberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion Big Daddys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 260,907 Big Daddys, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,176,723 per year while the poor average 35,624, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.

Bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, newspapers print only headlines, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yummy Blubber's national animal is the Blue Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yummy Blubber is ranked 65,267th in the world and 3,337th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,088.63 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
