The Republic of Bustined Up is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Bustin with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.898 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 enormous, 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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bustined Upian economy, worth a remarkable 2,333 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 146,766 Bustins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Bustonia" t-shirts. 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 242,855th in the world and 301st in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.
