The Black-Balled Bouncers of -Mr Stick- is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Branch Manager QA Stick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.866 billion Sticks 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 enormous 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 28%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Widespread voter apathy has been credited to allegations that all candidates are puppets of Branch Manager QA Stick, -Mr Stick-'s airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 3,398th in the Pacific and 96,581st in the world for Nudest, with 70 Cheeks per Square Mile.
