The All-Pervasive Infestation of Socialist Cockroaches is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the King of Cockroaches with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, anti-smoking policies, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.448 billion cockroaches are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olson Middle School. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped cockroach economy, worth a remarkable 5,347 trillion toilet paper rolls a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is an amazing 202,187 toilet paper rolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", and there are no more heroes any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Cockroaches's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is state atheism.

Socialist Cockroaches is ranked 8th in the world and 1st in Toilette for Lowest Crime Rates, with 395.95 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
