The Incorporated States of Cocktail Waitresses is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Doctor Benway with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.323 billion Cocktail Waitresses hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vending Machine. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The Cocktail Waitressesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,593 trillion pogosticks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 97,649 pogosticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Doctor Benway on Cocktail Waitresses's coulrophobia epidemic, posters on 'Cocktail Waitressesian Values' advise against being proud of Cocktail Waitresses, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cocktail Waitresses's national animal is the alien life form, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cocktail Waitresses is ranked 9,224th in the world and 94th in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 4,018 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
