The Republic of Buddhai is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, lack of airports, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.127 billion Buddhaians 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, prioritizes Industry, although Administration and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Buddhaian economy, worth a remarkable 1,864 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 304,371 currencies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,753,350 per year while the poor average 4,015, a ratio of 685 to 1.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, molehills are the only mountains deemed safe enough for the public, autocrats are persona non grata, and the most common answers to where babies come from are "uh... ask your mother" and "um... ask your father". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Buddhai's national animal is the animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Buddhai is ranked 128th in the world and 7th in Vickenian experiment incubator for Most Avoided, scoring 1,622.94 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
