The Confederacy of Bulli is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Bull with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.817 billion Bullians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulldozer City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bullian economy, worth 241 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 133,031 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 394,963 per year while the poor average 35,151, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bulli's national animal is the Rabid Squirrel and its national religion is Setism.

Bulli is ranked 20,101st in the world and 566th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.75 on the Human Development Index.
