The Pizza Delivery States of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 15.488 billion citizens 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 4,920 trillion Kefkaris 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, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, 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 amazing 317,670 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has quashed a recent coup attempt, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, graffiti graces every city's streets, and most academic research has ground to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 12,022nd in the world and 1st in Mount Olympus for Largest Governments, scoring 31.56 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
