“No. You. Can't!!!”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Minnow

The Theocracy of Bullintine is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Your Grace with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.868 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glorth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.
Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Bullintine is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bullintine's national animal is the Wellington, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is United Methodism, and its currency is the Leaf.
