The Democratic Republic of Biddelonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mrs McGillicuddy with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.399 billion Biddelonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Upper Kumbukta West. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biddelonian economy, worth 355 trillion Buntas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 148,118 Buntas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, the government is avowedly secular, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biddelonia's national animal is the Wobbledigook, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Life the universe and everything.

Biddelonia is ranked 65,056th in the world and 2,323rd in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
