The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.938 billion Bullpupsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,141 trillion memeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,816 memeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullpups's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bullpups is ranked 17,274th in the world and 498th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 85,303.34 Standard Monetary Units.
