The Great Emirate of BuccaRuu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bucca's CEO with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 17.963 billion buccarians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Fort Ruu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The frighteningly efficient buccarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,577 trillion bucca dollhas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 366,147 bucca dollhas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,146,423 per year while the poor average 89,664, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and a tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger. Crime is totally unknown. BuccaRuu's national animal is the pink dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

BuccaRuu is ranked 820th in the world and 3rd in The Versutian Federation for Highest Economic Output, with 6,577 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
