The Golden Shores of The Bulnathmenhan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Kimball with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.345 billion Nathmenhuns 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nathmenhania. The average income tax rate is 74.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bulnathmenhanian economy, worth 149 trillion Nathmenhas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is an impressive 111,301 Nathmenhas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

If you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bulnathmenhan's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Bulnathmenhan is ranked 238,609th in the world and 1,174th in Europe for Most Armed, with 0.15 weapons per person.
