The Vizier Puffin of Bachtendekuppen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Edgar Erle with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 17.518 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 relatively small 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 8.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Bachtendekuppenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,649 trillion Ducats a year, is 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 94,160 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, 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 23,444th in the world and 754th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 66,729.35 Standard Monetary Units.
