The Empire of Funkle is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 597 million Funkleans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funkle City. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Funklean economy, worth 31.9 trillion Imperial Funkles 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. 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 53,389 Imperial Funkles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, newspapers print only headlines, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, and an eye for an eye leaves Funkle blind. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Funkle's national animal is the Snake with radiation poisoning, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Funkle is ranked 245,258th in the world and 10,146th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.63 bananas ingested per day.
