Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Not So Isolated Islands of Boring Paradise is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Malik IV with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.16 billion Paradisians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized 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 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paradisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,071 trillion Borish pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,169 Borish pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, and the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia. 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 156,474th in the world and 79th in Esportiva for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 18.26 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
