The Glorious Empire of Mr Rogers Neighbourhood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Glorious Dictator for Life Mr Rogers with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, lack of airports, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.944 billion nieghbourians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Environment is also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Make-Believe. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The enormous but underdeveloped nieghbourian economy, worth a remarkable 1,537 trillion imaginations a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. 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 85,700 imaginations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", frat-house partying has become the national pastime, Nieghbourian junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Mr Rogers Neighbourhood's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Glorious Following of Mr Rogers.

Mr Rogers Neighbourhood is ranked 224,192nd in the world and 94th in The Alliance of Dictators for Rudest Citizens, with 15.88 Insults Per Minute.
