The Republic of The idle bludger is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 15.973 billion idle bludgerians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.9%.

The very strong idle bludgerian economy, worth 626 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 39,224 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 123,198 per year while the poor average 9,562, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The idle bludger's national animal is the yabby.

The idle bludger is ranked 58,612th in the world and 19th in Australia for Most Developed, scoring 56.39 on the Human Development Index.
