The Sacred Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.992 billion Hawkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradisia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Soda Sales industry.

The military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and children as young as eight can be found working in factories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boring Paradise's national animal is the Hawka Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Hawkism, and its currency is the Borish pound.

Boring Paradise is ranked 8th in Esportiva and 6,444th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
