The Toast of Annoying Nasal Drip is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Cardinal Flowsfreeli with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.747 billion Annoying Nosers 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."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sniffle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Annoying economy, worth 659 trillion Thin Dimes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 85,069 Thin Dimes, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

The only women behind bars are barmaids, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, soldiers are slaughtered in their thousands due to lack of training, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Annoying Nasal Drip's national animal is the Goat of Many Colors, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of the Holy Kleenix.

Annoying Nasal Drip is ranked 62,058th in the world and 3rd in Starbase Hopeless for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 86.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
