Bachtendekuppen was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 270

The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.113 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anglesey City. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,945 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,169 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Bachtendekuppenian grocery store, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bachtendekuppen's national animal is the Puffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bachtendekuppen is ranked 44,274th in the world and 2,177th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 63.11 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
