The Rum Revelations of Bilge Rat Ronnie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bilge Rat Ronnie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.437 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 7,086 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 289,998 assorted pieceses of 8, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,347,286 per year while the poor average 37,512, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

Cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, the government is avowedly secular, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, and parents are legally not allowed to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. 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 166,213th in the world and 311th in Yggdrasil for Smartest Citizens, with 0.74 Quips Per Hour.
