The Salty Dogs of Great Bights Mum is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-working, intelligent population of 21.248 billion Great Bights Mumians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although the Environment and Law & Order are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 78%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, artists are pillars of society, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Bights Mum's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the coupon.

Great Bights Mum is ranked 676th in The North Pacific and 15,954th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -2 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
