The Once and Future Delegate of Budgie Snugglers is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nakari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 8.01 billion Budgie Snugglers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The budgie-smuggling economy, worth 402 trillion snuggles 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 50,250 snuggles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and pedants defending Nakari observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Budgie Snugglers's national animal is the budgie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Budgie Snugglers is ranked 4,119th in the world and 18th in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 23,778 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
