The Republic of Buness is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Darret Brown with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.711 billion Bunessians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowen. The average income tax rate is 32.1%.

The powerhouse Bunessian economy, worth 590 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 76,587 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, Darret Brown can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buness's national animal is the Stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Buness is ranked 114,402nd in the world and 9th in Laraniem for Fattest Citizens, with 9.99 Obesity Rate.
