The Federal Republic of The Buckeye States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nickolaus von Böhm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.663 billion Buckeye Staters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colombus. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Buckeye Statesian economy, worth 637 trillion Buckeye Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,668 Buckeye Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, Colombus Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Buckeye States's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thicc Boism.

The Buckeye States is ranked 199,722nd in the world and 7,800th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
