The Armed Republic of Sprinkler is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Adolf Einstein with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.913 billion Sprinklerians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purgatory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sprinklerian economy, worth a remarkable 4,044 trillion slaves a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 585,065 slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,450,467 per year while the poor average 5,639, a ratio of 966 to 1.

Deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sprinkler's national animal is the subhuman, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sprinkler is ranked 1,483rd in the world and 42nd in the South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 55.96 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
