The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.601 billion Bullpupsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth 471 trillion memeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 130,882 memeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 379,050 per year while the poor average 35,813, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullpups's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bullpups is ranked 22,553rd in the world and 364th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 609.00427690368 Days.
