The Insanely Wrecked Nation of Glugerstut is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by President Johnathan Briggs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.954 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, Glugerstut's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Glugerstut's national animal is the Wolf, 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 5th in Carnival of Souls and 21,102nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
