The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.556 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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth 738 trillion memeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,684 memeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 214,480th in the world and 8,125th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 4.77 Prayers Per Hour.
