The Disputed Territories of Bottle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.791 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 43%. 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 876th in Balder and 22,840th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 11 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
