The Free Land of Binoulia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 646 million Binoulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aidatown. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Binoulian economy, worth 68.5 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 106,105 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Binoulia's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Binoulia is ranked 165,557th in the world and 5,147th in the West Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
