The Kingdom of Iggleboggle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arvey Thomas with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.291 billion Iggleboggleans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Iggleboggle. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Igglebogglean economy, worth 136 trillion Iggle Bounces 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 105,788 Iggle Bounces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Couch potatoes are considered to be model citizens, a nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, young girls often attend the same schools as their children, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iggleboggle's national animal is the Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Iggleboggle is ranked 244,950th in the world and 1st in Ocean Rocks for Smartest Citizens, with 9.95 quips per hour.
