The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.859 billion Bullpupsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth 702 trillion memeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,943 memeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullpups's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bullpups is ranked 71,002nd in the world and 2,696th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,369.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
