The Confederacy of Bulli is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Bull with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.628 billion Bullians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulldozer City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Bullian economy, worth 214 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 131,483 Guilders, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, if a tree falls in the forest Lord Bull is personally notified, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bulli's national animal is the Rabid Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Setism.

Bulli is ranked 140,771st in the world and 5,509th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
