The Theocracy of Bushkrub is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 564 million Bushkrubians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bushkrub City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The strong Bushkrubian economy, worth 50.7 trillion Spaghetti Dongs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 89,944 Spaghetti Dongs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,225 per year while the poor average 17,252, a ratio of 19.2 to 1.

A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, and one can walk from one side of Bushkrub City to the other without setting foot on Bushkrubian soil. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bushkrub's national animal is the Homo sapien, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bushkrub is ranked 29,210th in the world and 1,030th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.44 on the Rand Index.
