The Undead Armed World Bank of Failboat is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Premiere Supreme Commander with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.993 billion Failboatanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underground Fortified Failboat Kremlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Failboatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,130 trillion Schrute Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 188,578 Schrute Bucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 817,443 per year while the poor average 27,624, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Schrute Buck charge on their phone bill, and Failboatian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Failboat's national animal is the Kramer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Failboat is ranked 177,994th in the world and 266th in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 7.96 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
