The Kingdom of Butthurtius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Butthurt with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.087 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 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Butthurtiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion Ragolas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,718 Ragolas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. 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.

Butthurtius is ranked 188,817th in the world and 8,232nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.85 Obesity Rate.
