The Colony of Bugbear is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and public floggings. The hard-working population of 1.482 billion Bugbears have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 14.2%.

The strong Bugbear economy, worth 72.3 trillion CutHeads a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,801 CutHeads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, sleeping on the job is recommended, and write-in candidate 'Leader Sucks' is perennially popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Bugbear's national animal is the Mouse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bugbear is ranked 129,882nd in the world and 9,117th in Chicken overlords for Largest Populations, with 1.48 billion Capita.
