The Commonwealth of Squirrelnut is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Casimir Phalangimus McChicken-Urso with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.224 billion Squirrelnutties are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinglebury. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Squirrelnutian economy, worth 38.8 trillion bunchnuggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 17,456 bunchnuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Squirrelnut's national animal is the ladybug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Archieism.

Squirrelnut is ranked 167,912th in the world and 40th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 7.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
