Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Duchies-Coterie of Buten is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.8 billion Butens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cirault Astrad. The average income tax rate is 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Buten economy, worth a remarkable 1,576 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 202,160 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, all footpaths have tollbooths, the Buten Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, and The Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Buten's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Profiteering.

Buten is ranked 2,757th in the world and 67th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 14,865.63 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
