The Private Stash of Top Shelf Weed is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Marijuana Horticulturist with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.804 billion Top Shelf Weedians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Marijuana Dispensary. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Top Shelf Weedian economy, worth a remarkable 2,142 trillion ounces a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,545 ounces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals. Crime is totally unknown. Top Shelf Weed's national animal is the barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Weed.

Top Shelf Weed is ranked 1,562nd in the world and 1st in Weed for Best Weather, with 518 Meters Of Sunlight.
