The Champion sillysong singers of SillySongsWithLarry is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Larry the Cucumber with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.199 billion Vegietales 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Promised Land. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.

The all-consuming SillySongWithLarryian economy, worth 120 trillion TomTheTomatos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 100,220 TomTheTomatos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 375,266 per year while the poor average 18,725, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

Intelligence agencies frequently invite passers-by into their secret vaults for tea and biscuits, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, Larry the Cucumber's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, and the fate of the world literally rests on Larry the Cucumber's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SillySongsWithLarry's national animal is the Barbara Manatee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is American Jewish Mobsters.

SillySongsWithLarry is ranked 232,126th in the world and 203rd in The Social Liberal Union for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.06 Tourists Per Hour.
