Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic State of Buckerino is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Christopher Bucky Marcopus with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.788 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, 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 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buckerinorian economy, worth 295 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 165,147 Regals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown. Buckerino's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckerino is ranked 6,264th in the world and 135th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 87.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
