The Federal Republic of The Buckeye States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nickolaus von Böhm with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.492 billion Buckeye Staters 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, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colombus. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buckeye Statesian economy, worth 615 trillion Buckeye Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,098 Buckeye Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, there's no such thing as bad publicity, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and Colombus Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years. Crime is totally unknown. The Buckeye States's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thicc Boism.

The Buckeye States is ranked 179,662nd in the world and 7,390th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.06 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
