|Leader||the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs|
The Duchies-Coterie of Buten is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.12 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment 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 2.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Buten economy, worth a remarkable 1,877 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 205,825 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Buten's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Profiteering.
