The Arboreal Tangle of Bigstickistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Magnus Johannson with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.379 billion Bigstickistanii hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Baton. The average income tax rate is 23.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bigstickistanian economy, worth 647 trillion tally sticks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,900 tally sticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. Crime is totally unknown. Bigstickistan's national animal is the phasmatodea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Totemism.

Bigstickistan is ranked 144,964th in the world and 3,866th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.49 Crimes Per Hour.
