The Oligarchic Dictatorship of Buceroque is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Vitaelus family with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.154 billion Buqueans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caden Cotard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Buquean economy, worth a remarkable 2,635 trillion partizanis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 323,183 partizanis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,210,127 per year while the poor average 60,384, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and contestants on Buceroque's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime is totally unknown. Buceroque's national animal is the hog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buceroque is ranked 191,741st in the world and 7,667th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.88 Crimes Per Hour.
