The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.663 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 Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth 855 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. Average income is an impressive 111,665 memeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, criminals are thrown to the Doggoes to repay their debt to society, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand. 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 38,670th in the world and 1,220th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 81.75 years.
