The Rogue Nation of Bingbongia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The all knowing Me with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.104 billion Bingbongians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stink bog. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The crackwhore is believed to be extinct, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bingbongia's national animal is the crackwhore, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The worship of Me, and its currency is the dorrah.

Bingbongia is ranked 11th in the Pacific and 229th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 40 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
