The Theocracy of Bullintine is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Your Grace with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.278 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, moralistic, 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 70.6%.
The powerhouse Bullintinean economy, worth 427 trillion Leaves a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 80,947 Leaves, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.
Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the eerie remains of the final shuttle mission orbit in silence as a sober reminder of the abandoned space program, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and large areas of Bullintine are not accessible by the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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.
