The Democratic Republic of Basketweaving Monkeys is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lee Gustafen with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.908 billion Basketweaving Monkeysians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Non Sequitur City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.9%.

The all-consuming Basketweaving Monkeysian economy, worth a remarkable 2,011 trillion Cryptoids a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,362 Cryptoids, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children's toy tractors have been seized as state property, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Basketweaving Monkeysian military unleashed its biological weapons, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, and idyllic countryside scenes see border collies herding sixty-ton dinosaurs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Basketweaving Monkeys's national animal is the Gray Langur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Monkeyism.

Basketweaving Monkeys is ranked 160,983rd in the world and 5,168th in Balder for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 13.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
