The Hanging Chad of Butterfly Ballot is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 20.114 billion Butterfly Ballotians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.3%.

The strong Butterfly Ballotian economy, worth 974 trillion moonstones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is 48,472 moonstones, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is compulsory and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. Crime is moderate. Butterfly Ballot's national animal is the panther.

Butterfly Ballot is ranked 50th in Florida and 106,603rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 14 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
