The Republic of Partybus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Doctor Macgilicutty with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 29.521 billion Pranksters enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snoddyville. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Partybusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,599 trillion buds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,792 buds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", posters on 'Partybusian Values' advise against being proud of Partybus, and government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support'. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Partybus's national animal is the Fruit Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Partybus is ranked 223,389th in the world and 7,298th in Lazarus for Most Primitive, scoring -212.88 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
