The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.477 billion Bachtendekuppenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anglesey City. The average income tax rate is 10.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,705 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 92,316 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, foreign football clubs wave the Bachtendekuppenian flag before every game, the nation is wading into dangerous waters, and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Bachtendekuppenian sovereign territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 67,420th in the world and 2,241st in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,082.88 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
