The Republic of Bzux is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.593 billion Bzuxians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bzux City. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bzuxian economy, worth 861 trillion Ounces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 89,759 Ounces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bzux's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bzux is ranked 74,141st in the world and 2,931st in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,653.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
