The Democratic State of Buckerino is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Christopher Bucky Marcopus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.528 billion Buckerinorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsupia. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Buckerinorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 trillion Regals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 192,106 Regals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime is totally unknown. Buckerino's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckerino is ranked 142,162nd in the world and 7,139th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -3.16 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
