The Monopoly Tycoons of Twobagger is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King James with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 14.375 billion Twobaggerians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twobagger City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Twobaggerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,851 trillion pansies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 128,782 pansies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The judicial system legislates morality, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Twobaggerian satellites can detect it, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twobagger's national animal is the turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Twobagger is ranked 3,256th in the world and 5th in The Black Hawks for Safest, scoring 134.81 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
