The United Socialist States of Bubba Bean is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Merle May Lestrange with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.585 billion Bubba Beanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taz City. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bubba Beanian economy, worth 138 trillion Biscuits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 53,444 Biscuits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bubba Bean's national animal is the Taz, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bubba Bean is ranked 227,727th in the world and 7,497th in Balder for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
