The Hotdog-craving birb of Seagull is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Steven Seagulls with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.372 billion Seagulls are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ackopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Seagulls economy, worth a remarkable 1,185 trillion stolen hotdogs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 271,121 stolen hotdogs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,447,183 per year while the poor average 26,677, a ratio of 54.2 to 1.

Royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work, celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Seagull's national animal is the Seagull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of Hotdog.

Seagull is ranked 159,966th in the world and 481st in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 1.84 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
