The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 17.027 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 6.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,717 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified 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 an impressive 100,867 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 11,209th in the world and 398th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
