The Fabulous Red Bandana of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.001 billion Bilge Rats are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

An IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and skateboarding is the only legal way to travel. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 38th in The Skeleton Army and 111,145th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -62 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
