The Protectorate of Froggy Bottom Bog is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Council of the Swamp with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.524 billion Froggy Bottom Bogians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The thriving Froggy Bottom Bogian economy, worth 137 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 90,352 Bits, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Froggy Bottom Bog's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Open Door.

Froggy Bottom Bog is ranked 175,628th in the world and 166th in Crystal Falls for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
