The Unified Robotic Cheesemakers of Pightinbotanoffen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by mousels with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.102 billion Pightinbotanoffenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pightinbotanoffenburg. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pightinbotanoffenian economy, worth 298 trillion Flokas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,886 Flokas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hell is not always other people, graffiti graces every city's streets, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime is totally unknown. Pightinbotanoffen's national animal is the Dormouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Mysticism.

Pightinbotanoffen is ranked 7,084th in the world and 187th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,342.19 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
