The Arboreal Tangle of Bigstickistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Magnus Johannson with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.141 billion Bigstickistanii 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 Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Baton. The average income tax rate is 19.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bigstickistanian economy, worth 621 trillion tally sticks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,089 tally sticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit. Crime is totally unknown. Bigstickistan's national animal is the phasmatodea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Totemism.

Bigstickistan is ranked 80,028th in the world and 2,802nd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,187.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
