The Incredible sans funny of Economichunger is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by sans undertal with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory gun ownership, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.734 billion hungry consumers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Economichungerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,420 trillion McFlurries a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 300,010 McFlurries, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,762,653 per year while the poor average 3,308, a ratio of 835 to 1.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, and the Small Council has more than a little influence. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Economichunger's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Riding the Wave.

Economichunger is ranked 8,276th in the world and 410th in Balder for Largest Governments, scoring 35.33 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
