The Dictatorship of Bhiff is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Rael with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 18.505 billion Humans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotsho City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The strong Human economy, worth a remarkable 2,949 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 159,380 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Bhiff's hospitals, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, the GPS-tracked jogging routes of military personnel are a possible security risk, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bhiff's national animal is the Norris, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Raelism.

Bhiff is ranked 25,784th in the world and 1,332nd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 76.98 on the Human Development Index.
