The Republic of 99 Buckaroos is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 580 million 99 Buckaroosians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming 99 Buckaroosian economy, worth 52.4 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 90,373 Buckaroos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's a politician called Male Infant Delauter, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 99 Buckaroos's national animal is the Buckaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

99 Buckaroos is ranked 169,626th in the world and 78th in Ascetic Aesthetics for Largest Populations, with 580 million Capita.
