The Allied States of Biggstonia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by BiggieSmalls with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.393 billion Biggstonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Biggstonia City. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biggstonian economy, worth 831 trillion ObeyStars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,202 ObeyStars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Biggstonia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Biggstonia is ranked 3,212th in the world and 48th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 147.73 on the Hayek Index.
