The Not So Holy Red Blue Utopias of Bodegraven is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Royal Highness Angus Postma with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.32 billion Bodegravenaren hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Bodegraven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The strong Bodegravens economy, worth a remarkable 1,602 trillion BodegravenGuldens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,268 BodegravenGuldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, the government pours millions of BodegravenGuldens into rehabilitation programs annually, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Bodegraven to be bombproof. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bodegraven's national animal is the Freckled Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Theism.

Bodegraven is ranked 1st in Global Right Alliance and 410th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,884.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
