The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.876 billion Bullpupsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 33.9%.

The powerhouse Bullpupsian economy, worth 377 trillion memeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 131,204 memeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullpups's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bullpups is ranked 107,459th in the world and 4,185th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 41.25 on the Hayek Index.
