The Protectorate of Buck-in-Gham is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 414 million Bucks-in-Ghamian are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Buck-in-Ghamian economy, worth 55.2 trillion Bucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,318 Bucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 684,324 per year while the poor average 14,223, a ratio of 48.1 to 1.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, many believe that the only good Buck is a dead Buck, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Buck-in-Gham's national animal is the Buck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Buck-in-Gham is ranked 145,174th in the world and 5,398th in The East Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 12.51 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
