The Monopoly Tycoons of Twobagger is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 14.431 billion Twobaggerians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twobagger City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Twobaggerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion pansies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 128,900 pansies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twobagger's national animal is the turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Twobagger is ranked 207,118th in the world and 357th in The Black Hawks for Highest Drug Use, scoring 17.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
