The Republic of Malarkey Detected 17 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 711 million Malarkey Detected 17ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The Malarkey Detected 17ian economy, worth 33.8 trillion Malarkeys a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 47,479 Malarkeys, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malarkey Detected 17's national animal is the Malarkey, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
