The Democratic Republic of Gafflebag is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 509 million Gafflebagels hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hogworth. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Gafflebagel economy, worth 40.2 trillion shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 78,954 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, and scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gafflebag's national animal is the groundhog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gafflebag is ranked 136,587th in the world and 3,055th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 193 billion Standard Monetary Units.
