Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Duchies-Coterie of Buten is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.197 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, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 1,672 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 203,981 Florins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

A new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, lending money has become a major liability, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and for just a few extra Florins Butens can get new driving records with their new cars. 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 23,078th in the world and 535th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 538.9961480978 Days.
