The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.275 billion Bachtendekuppenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government prioritizes Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anglesey City. The average income tax rate is 4.1%.

The powerhouse Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,563 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,355 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

President Edgar Erle sports gold-plated grillz to promote the government's hard money policy, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, and drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 21,126th in the world and 766th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,711.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
