The Republic of Bugduz is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bağdüzlü with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.865 billion Bugduzlus are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merkez. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bugduzian economy, worth 643 trillion Kaimes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 166,456 Kaimes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 523,634 per year while the poor average 40,487, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Bugduz's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, companies are turning to trained Cakırs for their most menial jobs, and armed police units patrol the roads late at night. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bugduz's national animal is the Cakır, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Laiklik.

Bugduz is ranked 45,606th in the world and 2,406th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.52 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
