The Mardi Gras Partying of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.917 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandanaland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bilge Rattish economy, worth a remarkable 4,745 trillion assorted pieces of 8s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 264,886 assorted pieces of 8s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,789,990 per year while the poor average 14,496, a ratio of 123 to 1.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, children as young as eight can be found working in factories, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and soldiers are slaughtered in their thousands due to lack of training. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bilge Rat Ronnie's national animal is the Mangy Scurvy Bilge Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jack Sparrow Worship.

Bilge Rat Ronnie is ranked 144th in Philosophy 115 and 113,203rd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -2,328.9 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
