The Buttastrophe of Buttstan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Buttman with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.068 billion Buttstanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buttburg. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Buttstanian economy, worth 232 trillion rubbles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,798 rubbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buttstan has designated Buttburg as its capital city, Buttology has been named as Buttstan's national religion, and Buttman has just been declared ruler of Buttstan in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buttstan's national animal is the once decapitated double-headed eagle and its national religion is Buttology.

Buttstan is ranked 215,772nd in the world and 13th in Russia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -12.13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
