The Half-Baked Abrogation of The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Studly Spud with a fair hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.807 billion Monster Mash enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Mashed economy, worth a remarkable 4,783 trillion Chips a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 442,627 Chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,651,213 per year while the poor average 83,191, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Decongestants have replaced Chips in street transactions, movie references are legally admissible in court, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud's national animal is the Spudazzle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

The Botched Pejazzle of the Studly Spud is ranked 608th in the world and 4th in Spiritus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 41,486.43 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
