The Divine Empire of Bulchara is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Primordial Syth Bulcharza with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.609 billion Bulcharans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Synari. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bulcharan economy, worth a remarkable 2,995 trillion Golden Bulches a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 282,394 Golden Bulches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, the news is showing footage of Primordial Syth Bulcharza bullying an old man to the point of tears, and decongestants have replaced Golden Bulches in street transactions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bulchara's national animal is the Dragon-Clawed Lizard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jyvanism.

Bulchara is ranked 91,382nd in the world and 4,104th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,523.72 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
