The Holy Empire of Bullpups is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bean with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.328 billion Bullpupsians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The all-consuming Bullpupsian economy, worth 681 trillion memeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 127,879 memeses, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bullpups's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Bullpups is ranked 63,842nd in the world and 2,236th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 75.22 Years.
