The Flatulent Bleatings of Pompous Windbags is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Maximillian with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.249 billion Pompous Windbagsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mintaka. The average income tax rate is 50.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pompous Windbagsian economy, worth a remarkable 8,827 trillion bones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 301,821 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Pompous Windbags's national animal is the kestrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pompous Windbags is ranked 13,937th in the world and 6th in Free States of Gaia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,362.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
