The Kingdom of Butthurtius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Butthurt with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.281 billion Butthurtiusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergoton. The average income tax rate is 40.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Butthurtiusian economy, worth 923 trillion Ragolas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 126,875 Ragolas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Butthurtiusians, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butthurtius's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
