The Republic of BNoE is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 181 million BNoEians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The powerhouse BNoEian economy, worth 15.3 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 84,751 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, and reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BNoE's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BNoE is ranked 21,007th in the world and 1,098th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 110.18 on the Hayek Index.
