The Most Serene Republic of Breadandbutter is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 998 million Breadandbutterians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Breadandbutterian economy, worth 74.4 trillion Peanuts 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 Information Technology, Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Tourism. 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 74,564 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breadandbutter's national animal is the Googoodoll, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Breadandbutter is ranked 11,880th in the world and 456th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 118.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
