The Free Land of Howdy Doody Time is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Phineas T Bluster with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.5 billion Howdy Doody Timeans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Peanut Gallery. The average income tax rate is 22.1%.

The all-consuming Howdy Doody Timean economy, worth 222 trillion Doody Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 88,909 Doody Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Howdy Doody Time's national animal is the Flub-a-Dub.

Howdy Doody Time is ranked 57,252nd in the world and 4th in The Great Universe for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,287.46 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
