The Rogue Nation of Hilarious Shenanigans is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sabriffle with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.088 billion Hilarious Shenanigansians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gremlin. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Hilarious Shenanigansian economy, worth a remarkable 1,012 trillion Om Noms a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,837 Om Noms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the giant 80-storey carving of Sabriffle in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, and the nation is proudly the least fertile in The Alliance of Dictators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hilarious Shenanigans's national animal is the Liopleurodon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sabrifflism.

Hilarious Shenanigans is ranked 162,220th in the world and 161st in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.91 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
