The Theocracy of Bullintine is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Your Grace with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.583 billion Bullintineans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glorth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.5%.

The powerhouse Bullintinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion Leaves a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 88,360 Leaves, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Getting a haircut is a punishable offence, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullintine's national animal is the Wellington, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is United Methodism.

Bullintine is ranked 155,193rd in the world and 5,335th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 19 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
