The Fabulous Red Bandana of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.101 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.
The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles. 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.
