The Corporate States of Buisness inc holdings is a massive, safe nation, ruled by CEO Man with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.076 billion Buisness inc holdingsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buisness HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The all-consuming Buisness inc holdingsian economy, worth 224 trillion Points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 108,319 Points, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and more and more students are taking up a career in medicine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Buisness inc holdings's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is The Market.

Buisness inc holdings is ranked 71,138th in the world and 4th in The Imperial region of Kantar for Rudest Citizens, with 60.51 Insults Per Minute.
