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 remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.772 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Hawkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 trillion Borish pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant 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 112,844 Borish pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Borish pounds to support the Tourism industry. 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 84th in Esportiva and 127,108th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -159 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
