The Benign Republic of Tubbsalot is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a bizarre upright ant with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.316 billion Tubbsalottles enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Formicidia. The average income tax rate is 58%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Tubbsalot's national animal is the lover of fine art, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the snuckle.

Tubbsalot is ranked 18th in the Pacific and 750th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 429 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
