Bachtendekuppen was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 270

The Vice-Delegate Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.437 billion Bachtendekuppenians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anglesey City. The average income tax rate is 4.5%.

The powerhouse Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 100,870 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Bachtendekuppen, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 16,579th in the world and 468th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 278.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
