Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Republic of Buddhai is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its feral children, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.811 billion Buddhaians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Buddhaian economy, worth 599 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 213,406 currencies, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,923,005 per year while the poor average 2,917, a ratio of 659 to 1.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, supermodels maintain their skinny form by running away from government officials, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, and a milk bath costs more than bathing in money. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Buddhai's national animal is the animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Buddhai is ranked 1,164th in the world and 23rd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,428.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
