The Democratic Republic of Pukus is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, devout population of 12 million Pukusians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 12.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pukusian economy, worth 581 billion Suks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,482 Suks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime is well under control. Pukus's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pukus is ranked 66,565th in the world and 74th in Wintreath for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,464.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
