The Dictatorship of BTProductions is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, devout population of 481 million BTProductionsians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BTProductions City. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming BTProductionsian economy, worth 28.5 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,170 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, wildlife parks are packed with poachers yet increasingly devoid of animals, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BTProductions's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

BTProductions is ranked 157,978th in the world and 6,018th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 35.85 Insults Per Minute.
