LeaderLord Butthurt


The Kingdom of Butthurtius is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Butthurt with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.272 billion Butthurtiusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bergoton. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Butthurtiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion Ragolas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 119,174 Ragolas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Butthurtius's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Butthurtius is ranked 19,208th in the world and 1,017th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,480.36 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
