The Free Land of Bus house is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 99 million Bus houseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bus housean economy, worth 3.11 trillion bus fares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Book Publishing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,421 bus fares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime is totally unknown. Bus house's national animal is the school bus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bus house is ranked 42,030th in the world and 157th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 64.3 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
