The Conglomerate of Mary Bird is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bernard Madoff with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 996 million snow bunnies are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Environment and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berzelius Vale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient snow bunny economy, worth 122 trillion snowballs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,867 snowballs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 507,396 per year while the poor average 19,560, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

For 25 snowballs tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, child labor has been outlawed, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mary Bird's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Mary Bird is ranked 101,149th in the world and 539th in 10000 Islands for Most Stationary, with 174.0947149682 days.
