The Great Emirate of BuccaRuu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bucca's CEO with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.745 billion buccarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fort Ruu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient buccarian economy, worth an astonishing 10,513 trillion bucca dollhas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 506,812 bucca dollhas, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, eminent domain has been abolished, New Fort Ruu's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime is totally unknown. BuccaRuu's national animal is the pink dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

BuccaRuu is ranked 10,858th in the world and 4th in The Versutian Federation for Most Influential, scoring 4,325 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
