The Socialist Republic of Cuillin is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Madame Self with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.692 billion Cuillinish hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waternish. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cuillinish economy, worth a remarkable 3,000 trillion papillons 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 145,008 papillons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown. Cuillin's national animal is the Giant Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is buddhism.

Cuillin is ranked 292,046th in the world and 280th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -317.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
