The Republic of Thebest27 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 735 million Thebest27ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Thebest27ian economy, worth 30.4 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,350 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thebest27's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Thebest27 is ranked 167,512th in the world and 115th in A Card Farm for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
