The United Kingdom of Bughum is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sasha Maslin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.207 billion Bughumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Humburg. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Bughumian economy, worth 110 trillion euros 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 34,446 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback owl is only seen in captivity programs, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bughum's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Followers of the Hawk.

Bughum is ranked 11,302nd in the world and 673rd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,956.55 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
