The Oppressed Peoples of Bucals Kagotoaion is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vladimir Pavijanovich with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 2.735 billion Bucals Kagotoaionians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Baboondale. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bucals Kagotoaionian economy, worth 700 trillion baviaans 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 an amazing 256,105 baviaans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is totally unknown. Bucals Kagotoaion's national animal is the baboon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bucals Kagotoaion is ranked 10,678th in the world and 184th in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 99.65 kickbacks per hour.
