The Sineyourpityontherunnykind of Pootie Tangia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Beavis Walker Plimpton with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.302 billion Pootie Tangians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cleepa City. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pootie Tangian economy, worth 167 trillion Wacky bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,495 Wacky bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Pootie Tangian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and mothers drive their college-graduate children to work. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wada-ta ideal.

Pootie Tangia is ranked 8,780th in the world and 1st in The Holy Egg for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 10,550.45 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
