The Black-Balled Bouncers of -Mr Stick- is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Branch Manager QA Stick with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.648 billion -Mr Stick-ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Healthcare and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Pizza Delivery.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the government is reining in public spending, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. -Mr Stick-'s national animal is the walking stick, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Anti-marsupialism, and its currency is the toothpick.

-Mr Stick- is ranked 911th in the Pacific and 27,736th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -4 on the Hayek Index.
