The Not So Holy Red Blue Utopias of Bodegraven is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Royal Highness Angus Postma with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.354 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Welfare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Bodegraven. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals. Crime is totally unknown. Bodegraven's national animal is the Freckled Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Agnostic Theism, and its currency is the BodegravenGulden.
