The Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Malik II with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.103 billion Paradisians 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 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Soda Sales industry.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and the religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives. 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 Islam, and its currency is the Borish pound.

Boring Paradise is ranked 25th in Esportiva and 18,098th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 22 on the Enoch Index.
