The Disputed Territories of Bicho Raro is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 220 million Bicho Raroans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 12.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bicho Raroan economy, worth 13.2 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,929 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bicho Raro's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bicho Raro is ranked 94,631st in the world and 208th in Karma for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,638.05 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
