The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 24.929 billion Bachtendekuppenians 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 Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anglesey City. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,278 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,401 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, and airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps. Crime is well under control. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 280,363rd in the world and 4,871st in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.85 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
