The Republic of 62 Buckaroos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.364 billion 62 Buckaroosians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient 62 Buckaroosian economy, worth 480 trillion Buckaroos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 142,794 Buckaroos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

62 Buckaroos has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach, and the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 62 Buckaroos's national animal is the Buckaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

62 Buckaroos is ranked 39,474th in the world and 14th in Ascetic Aesthetics for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,313.34 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
