The Dictatorship of Bumrum is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 384 million Rum bottles 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bumrumian economy, worth 23.3 trillion lemons a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,763 lemons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, Bumrumian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBB Governor goes house hunting, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bumrum's national animal is the demon unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bumrum is ranked 105,284th in the world and 1,179th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,479.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
