The United States of Gluebucket is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.844 billion Gluebucketians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gluebucket City. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gluebucketian economy, worth 754 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 155,772 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gluebucket's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gluebucket is ranked 14,753rd in the world and 291st in 10000 Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,503.12 Tourists Per Hour.
