The relatively small, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Beech Beach House. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.0%.

The very strong Stick-ish economy, worth a remarkable 1,326 trillion toothpicks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,505 toothpicks, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
