The Hurricane Season of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.352 billion Bilge Rats enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bandanaland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bilge Rattish economy, worth a remarkable 6,729 trillion assorted pieceses of 8 a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 288,179 assorted pieceses of 8, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,314,491 per year while the poor average 38,551, a ratio of 34.1 to 1.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Bilge Rattish language, and convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bilge Rat Ronnie's national animal is the Mangy Scurvy Bilge Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jack Sparrow Worship.

Bilge Rat Ronnie is ranked 112,792nd in the world and 192nd in Yggdrasil for Most Devout, with 8.62 Prayers Per Hour.
