The United States of Gluebucket is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.401 billion Gluebucketians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gluebucket City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Gluebucketian economy, worth 714 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 162,297 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gluebucket's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Gluebucket is ranked 160,572nd in the world and 1,740th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 10.74 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
