The Dominion of Bukwas is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.517 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zunakwa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bukwasian economy, worth 945 trillion knocks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,113 knocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 456,494 per year while the poor average 35,295, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. 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 61,913th in the world and 9th in The Sasquatch Republic for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,118.47 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
