The Nudest of Buddhists is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.585 billion Buddhists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Buddhistsian economy, worth 159 trillion Smiles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,603 Smiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Buddhists's national animal is the Sentient Being, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buddhists is ranked 11,852nd in the world and 1st in Angkor Wat for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 81.39 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
