The Good Stuff of Shiggy Donatello is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Macintosh V with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 15.63 billion Deloreans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Die Lit. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Delorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,524 trillion kids a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,499 kids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shiggy Donatello's national animal is the lol, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Artman.

Shiggy Donatello is ranked 210,274th in the world and 98th in Gay for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.32 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
