The Disputed Territories of Bottle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.32 billion Bottleans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Commerce and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Bottle's national animal is the pink flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the blood of the enemy.

Bottle is ranked 457th in Balder and 10,532nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 185 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
