The Giant in the Trees of Illahee is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harry Henderson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.444 billion Squatches live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wahkiakum. The average income tax rate is 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Squatchy economy, worth a remarkable 1,277 trillion Dentaliums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 171,609 Dentaliums, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, the Treasury and Finance Ministry have been outsourced, and the well-off amuse themselves by organizing upstairs-downstairs stories within their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Illahee's national animal is the Tillakum Blackfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a Lesser God.

Illahee is ranked 4,544th in the world and 3rd in The Sasquatch Republic for Highest Food Quality, scoring 199.5 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
