The Dominion of Bukwas is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.453 billion Bukwasians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zunakwa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bukwasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 trillion knocks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,591 knocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 489,162 per year while the poor average 41,536, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bukwas's national animal is the Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bukwas is ranked 14,027th in the world and 4th in The Sasquatch Republic for Most Developed, scoring 87.72 on the Human Development Index.
