The Sineyourpityontherunnykind of Pootie Tangia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Lemming Biggles with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.081 billion Pootie Tangians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cleepa City. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pootie Tangian economy, worth 584 trillion Wacky bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 189,786 Wacky bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Pootie Tangia's border, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, the Pootie Tangia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and President Lemming Biggles's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pootie Tangia's national animal is the Pubic louse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wada-ta ideal.

Pootie Tangia is ranked 168,417th in the world and 4,052nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -62.78 on the Rand Index.
