The Woolly Knit Army Booties of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.514 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 Woodchip Exports industries.

Closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 22nd in Antarctica and 7,540th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 211 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
