The People's Republic of The BBP is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 549 million Panthers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hunab Ku Ujamma. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped BBPian economy, worth 25.7 trillion Comps 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 46,829 Comps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, BBPian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The BBP's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The BBP is ranked 101,314th in the world and 4,298th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 57.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
