The Duchies-Coterie of Buten is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.545 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, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 1.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Buten economy, worth a remarkable 1,725 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 201,933 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
Beavers are considered a delicacy, newspapers are running a front-page picture of the Coterie Council of Fiscal Affairs holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, and journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Profiteering.
