The Most Serene Republic of Bingotonia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bingo with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 12.108 billion Bingotonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boingo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bingotonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,539 trillion ButtCoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 292,286 ButtCoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,459,252 per year while the poor average 32,961, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bingotonia's national animal is the Sapo Toro, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bingotonia is ranked 3,101st in the world and 15th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Economic Output, with 3,539 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
