The Islamic Republic of Busoga Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Delbin Kasekende with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.163 billion Busogans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lakiska. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Busoga Islandsian economy, worth 246 trillion dinars 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, fairly diversified black market in Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. 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 40,051 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

President Delbin Kasekende has just been declared ruler of Busoga Islands in an international press conference, kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, the media have begun calling the government treasury "President Delbin Kasekende's stash", and the military struggles with recruitment. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Busoga Islands's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Twelver Shia Islam.

Busoga Islands is ranked 90,419th in the world and 63rd in Atlantian Oceania for Most Extreme, scoring 20.62 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
