The People's Republic of Buushi is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 2.197 billion Buushans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goso. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Buushian economy, worth 165 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 75,443 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buushi's national animal is the shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Buushi is ranked 26,677th in the world and 740th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,867.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
