The Republic of Dumpsterz is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 345 million Dumpsterzians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Landfill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The very strong Dumpsterzian economy, worth 22.5 trillion Dumpsterz Universal Dollars 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 65,287 Dumpsterz Universal Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,539 per year while the poor average 10,935, a ratio of 23.9 to 1.

Dumpsterz's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, all tariffs have been abolished, surveillance cameras are banned, and Dumpsterz has designated The Landfill as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dumpsterz's national animal is the Dumpster Radical Rebel Racoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dumpsterz is ranked 47,171st in the world and 1,090th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 261,540 Standard Monetary Units.
