The Holiday Happiness of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.677 billion Bilge Rats enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandanaland. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports industries.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, diplomats in Bilge Rat Ronnie are furious at constant police surveillance, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Bilge Rat Ronnie. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Bilge Rat Ronnie's national animal is the Mangy Scurvy Bilge Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Jack Sparrow Worship, and its currency is the assorted pieces of 8.

Bilge Rat Ronnie is ranked 1st in The House at Pooh Corner and 897th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 15 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
