Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Not So Isolated Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.964 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradisia. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Hawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,610 trillion Borish pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,326 Borish pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boring Paradise's national animal is the Hawka Bear, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hawkism.

Boring Paradise is ranked 54th in Esportiva and 95,707th in the world for Fattest Citizens, scoring -83.96 on the Transpolysaturated Intake Scale.
