The People´s Republic of Incredible Bums is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Serving Mastermind with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.564 billion Idiots love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Scam. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient foolish economy, worth a remarkable 2,905 trillion IQS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 156,520 IQS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and builders across Incredible Bums are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Incredible Bums's national animal is the Black Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is none.

Incredible Bums is ranked 20,552nd in the world and 2nd in Greifenreservat for Most Income Equality, scoring 70.24 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
