The Free and Holy Republic of The Happy Civilians is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Brilliant Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.915 billion Patriotic Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Joyous City of Freedom. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Patriotic Citizen economy, worth an astonishing 10,603 trillion Almighty Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 483,859 Almighty Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,532,184 per year while the poor average 4,351, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to The Happy Civilians, large areas of The Happy Civilians are not accessible by the public, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Happy Civilians's national animal is the Super Amazing Brave Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Happy Civilians is ranked 52nd in the world and 1st in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 99.14 Obesity Rate.
