The Rogue Nation of Takifugu is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, soft-spoken computers, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 232 million pufferfish are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Environment are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The a pufferfish economy, worth 14.4 trillion carrots 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 62,022 carrots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, the standard prescription for infertility-causing conditions is "go have a baby", and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takifugu's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Takifugu is ranked 98,552nd in the world and 1st in Baraistan for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 34,112.44 Standard Monetary Units.
