The Office Cowboy of Funkadelia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Funkenstein with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.743 billion Funkadelians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funky Nassau. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Funkadelic economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 trillion Grooves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 77,374 Grooves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Dr Funkenstein, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Funkadelia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown. Funkadelia's national animal is the Atomic Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Funkadelia is ranked 5,241st in the world and 165th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.06 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
