The Shadowy Backstage Presence of The Road Crew is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.406 billion Roadies hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The Stage Crew economy, worth 102 trillion Guitar Keys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 42,652 Guitar Keys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

A performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, the government is giving peace a chance, Roadies have replaced bears in a popular idiom, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Road Crew's national animal is the Fire Beasts, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Road Crew is ranked 229,546th in the world and 53rd in The Bar on the corner of every region for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.8 bananas ingested per day.
