The Ballerina for Halloween-a of Mousebumples is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by sisters Lizzy and Sasha Hall with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 31.24 billion Mousebumplesians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moustantinople. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mousebumplesian economy, worth a remarkable 6,621 trillion flying monkeys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 211,952 flying monkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Mousebumples has found 7 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mousebumples's national animal is the flying treemouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mousebumples is ranked 176,949th in the world and 1,210th in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -360.3 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
