Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Bullintine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Your Grace with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.373 billion Bullintineans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glorth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The all-consuming Bullintinean economy, worth 558 trillion Leaves a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 87,660 Leaves, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,165 per year while the poor average 22,678, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', Bullintine Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullintine's national animal is the Wellington, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is United Methodism.

Bullintine is ranked 1,684th in 10000 Islands and 124,194th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 8 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
