The Royal Buddy of Buddyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Jeff Moreau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 18.145 billion Buddylandians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buddyopolis. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Buddylandian economy, worth 871 trillion Newtonians a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration and Soda Sales. Average income is 48,024 Newtonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Buddyland has designated Buddyopolis as its capital city, Buddyism has been named as Buddyland's national religion, King Jeff Moreau has just been declared ruler of Buddyland in an international press conference, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buddyland's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddyism.

Buddyland is ranked 212,458th in the world and 4th in The Royal Alliance II for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
