The Republic of Partybus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Doctor Macgilicutty with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 29.187 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 4,547 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 107,769th in the world and 4,609th in Lazarus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
