The Republic of Bustined Up is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Bustin with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.656 billion Bustined Upians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bustonia. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bustined Upian economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion Bustins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 148,240 Bustins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being dead no longer has any benefits, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bustined Up's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bustined Up is ranked 41,269th in the world and 53rd in Spiritus for Most Politically Free, scoring 77.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
