The Confederacy of Lick the Stamp is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 6.787 billion Stamplickers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lick the Stampian economy, worth 214 trillion Stamps a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,662 Stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lick the Stamp's national animal is the Cheeto, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lick the Stamp is ranked 193,269th in the world and 6th in The Hakketomatian Commonwealth for Fattest Citizens, with 8.43 Obesity Rate.
