The Insanely Bearded Nation of Glugerstut is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Bearded One with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.287 billion Glugerstutians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glugerstut City. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, the nation leads Carnival of Souls in per capita stalking, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Glugerstut's national animal is the Beard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Euro.

Glugerstut is ranked 7th in Carnival of Souls and 111,189th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -158 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
