The Hegemonic Empire of Bunnytia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Gandhi the Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.957 billion Bunnytites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Public Transport receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunnytia City. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Bunnytian economy, worth 284 trillion Karots a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 40,841 Karots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Bunnytia Blood Tithe, police officers ride the swiftest Bunnies, government officials across Bunnytia are being "encouraged" to adopt Bunnies to set an example for the populace, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bunnytia's national animal is the Bunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cannabolism.
