Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Buckerino is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.096 billion Buckerinorians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcopi. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buckerinoan economy, worth 145 trillion Regals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 133,026 Regals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, skateparks can be found in every city, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime is totally unknown. Buckerino's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckerino is ranked 146,854th in the world and 7,342nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
