The Democratic State of Buckerino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Christopher Bucky Marcopus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.217 billion Buckerinorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marsupia. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Buckerinorian economy, worth 810 trillion Regals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 192,191 Regals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime is totally unknown. Buckerino's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckerino is ranked 160,712th in the world and 8,156th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.62 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
