The Imperial Confederation of Quffuffull is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Bobwina with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 19.709 billion Quffuffullers 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quffuffull City. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Quffuffic economy, worth a remarkable 1,814 trillion Quffuffic Ergots a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,059 Quffuffic Ergots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and Quffuffull City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quffuffull's national animal is the Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quffuffull is ranked 166,158th in the world and 5,635th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -21.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
